Try synchromesh made by Pennzoil, Royal Purple, GM.... they are all really about the same. It may fix your problem, it did for me. About 20 miles after I put it in it stopped the grinding. I went with the Pennzoil version becasue I could get it at Advanced Auto. If the Royal Purple had been easily available I would have used it.

Because people don't know how to drive. Please use the clutch and shift after you fully push the cluth it. Don't let the cluth out until after you finich shifting.

I'm sure that if you shifted slower (or properly) even after 6500rpm you wouldn't hear the grinding.

Actually, it's ever Honda.... very common problem. Even Apllo had his faults.
