SOURCE: A clunck noise changing gear
This does sound like a gearbox problem, either where the cogs lock together (the dogs go into recesses) or the shift forks themselves
The dogs do wear after high mileage which can make them slip out of gear
Ive never heard of a gearbox smoothing out over such low mileage, but I suppose it is just possible
You could get the gearbox 'blueprinted' (i.e. to manufacturers exact specifications) but this will cost a bomb !
Your best bet is to complain again & at least get a ride on another rocket3, or get it sorted under warranty
Please mark this as very helpful (if it has been!!)

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Have you tried replacing the spark plug wires and checking the spark plugs? I suspect that you have fuel flooding that's why it backfires. Good current to the spark plugs will result to better fuel burning. Check the spark plugs if they have big gaps, covered with carbon or maybe it's just faulty.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
