Thanks papa gene Slippage in first gear when cold is usually caused by low fluid level, the oil pan on the classic 900 is very shallow so even a shortfall of 1/2 a litre can cause the problem. As the fluid warms it expands and so brings up the fluid level. Check the level with the engine running and the "shifter" in park, and use the side of the dipstick depending on wether hot or cold.
