Are you sure that you are pushing the clutch all the way down when you shift? or do you release you clutch too early before your in gear? I know that has happend to me before when I raced that I release the clutch too early and I didn't shove it all the way in gear.

Maybe your throw arm is off when you shift? Does it feel like your in gear all the way when you shift?

The last thing I only can think of to help reduce the grinding of your gears is use a thicker tranny oil and maybe add in Lucas tranny additive.

90-93 Accord Manual Transmission Oil Change

Also you might want to add in Lucas Oil to your transmission to help quite it down. You can find it in Kragen auto parts, NAPA auto parts, and Pep Boys. Talk to one of the sales reps to get you the right bottle for your transmission.

"1. Use only SAE 10w-30, 10w-40, 20w-40, 30w oil rate SF or SG grade."
2. Make sure that you drive your car around for awhile so your oil can be
warm enough to drain all the oil out. As you know oil gets thinner when it
is heated up.
3. With transmission oil at operating temperture, turn OFF your engine, and
park your car where you will be drain your oil.
***Note: Make sure your car is on level ground while draining your transmission oil.
4. Get a oil drain pan and put it under the transmission.
5. Get a wrench and remove drain plug and drain transmission.
***Note: You should replace drain plug washer at every transmission oil change.
6. After oil is change put on the new drain plug washer and then tighten up the drain plug. at (29lb-ft)
7. Then fill the tranny back up with Oil it should use 2-3 qt. of oil check the dip stick after each quart is pour in. I am not to sure how much oil to put back in the transmission I haven't done it in awhile. So check the dip stick. But you should really fill your tranny up to the oil filter plug. Once oil starts coming out of that plug then you know your tranny is full.
8. Then take if for a spin around the block and check oil levels again.

occasional grinding gears, while shifting correctly, can be a precursor to a failing transmission.
