31k miles, fresh service.
Rode to work this morning all good. On the ride home, shifting went from a missed 2->3 shift to harsh shifting in all gears. When this has happened before it's been because oil level has dropped.
I just checked it and it's up to spec.
Any thoughts?

Agree, but just look at whether the clutch is dragging and needs adjusting.  Always do the simple stuff first.

My regular Triumph dealer serviced it.
Clutch has little to no drag and chain is slack as per common wisdom.

There have been a few reported issues with some of the last of the 955's that got the 1050 clutch, but that is definitely down to sticky or dragging clutch plates caused by not enough oil getting to the plates, plenty of info about this on the Tiger 1050 Forum, Hamlin Cycles in the US is the expert over there.

I guess you mean you trust your regular Triumph dealer.  Being a dealer dowsn'tmean shit anymore; a lot of dealers over here won't touchthe old Triumphs anymore because their young techs aren't trained on them.  Think on, a 5 yr apprenticeship but the bikes are 10 yrs old.  And they aren't taught to think and repair any more, they're taught to follow protocols and parts swap.

So probably the question should have been "Was it doing it before it was serviced..."?
