Is your machine hard to shift, or is it hard to get into gear? There is a difference as I usually find people say it is hard to shift. I regularly do maintenance on the gearshift Itself as if you take the top cover off the top, which is a ring and rubber, one will see that it has some slides on it.

Once these have become dry then it is hard to shift the lever and makes it appear to be a linkage problem to the box and I usually find with the passing OKAs I get in here that it is usually the same problem, there is also a grease nipple just in front of the engine, lift the engine cover up and you should see it on the universal.

Lubricate that first and it might surprise you. It did me with me the first time. However still go to the trouble of lubricating the actual gear shift ball and slides.

One has to remove the cover over the area between the driver's and passenger's legs, just take the gear knobs off then the 4 bolts and it is plan sailing from there.

I own 2 x LT OKAs and have to do both of them. I also have done the same to XT OKAs but did not look to see if the grease nipple was there.

Hope this is of some use

Darren,have a look at all the joints(ball and uni) also the bush on top of the selector were the arm comes out of the gearbox and connects to the linkage,these bushes tend to wear with the constant weight of the linkages and the vibration specially if the vehicle been on dirt roads a lot.
cheers
