Good move, had my Liner for 5 years now. Just under 50k miles. From 750 to 1854 cc"s, big move.
I don't notice the shifting anymore. Some maybe thoughts on the gears. The gears are a little bigger and flat ground. Play with shifting up. As to RPM and how quickly you shift. There is a point where you can shift without a clutch. If you time your shift to be near this point you may find shifting easer. I try to shift soon after I pull in the clutch. Don't baby it.
Be sure the clutch fluid is full and not turning grayish. Hopefully there is no air in the lines. There is just a little drag accross the clutch from the engine but should be barely noticeable. Carefull not to get any fluid on the paint.
You probably know but, down shifting, be sure you are in first before you get stopped.
You won't even notice these after a while.
