Hello 1st check the gearlinkage for any worn bushes or pivots as any lost motion means reduced effortat the gearbox and replace as necessary. Ideally have your assistant move thegear lever with you watching the linkage and see if you can spot where there isany excessive play or lost motion.If its a cable type linkage check along thecable lengths for any damage or signs of heavy wear / fretting, if you find anyreplace the cable. There may be some adjustment on the cable tension at thegearbox end (depending on the year) and the cable should be tensioned so thereis a minimum of slack but not so its taught
