Attn: Question frm new guy

Here is the problem. When I shift from first to second my bike gets lost somewhere in between. It usually happens when I get on it. Is this normal?

As I am riding, I pull the clutch in and lift my gear shifter to go to second and release the clutch and my bike ends up in neutral or between first and second. end result, when i try to go my bike just reves and i have to switch into second again

Clunky notchy kawi tranny. It's a false neutral. Just make sure you pull the clutch in and lift up until it clicks in all the way. Switching oils sometimes helps too. Unless it's popping out of second...then that's a different problem.

Had ZX-6 with same problem, had to replace most of tranny, and later found out that had cracked case giving excess movement on output shaft and had to have welded and redrilled to hold bearing race...

I think a 75 shot between first and second will cure the problem!

AIR SHIFTER OR BUY A HAONDA WILL FIX THAT PROBLEM ALSO

my bike does this too, always when i am going to take off fast. so what i do is kick up twice if i am going to take off fast. that way i sometimes go from first to third, but never end up in neutral.

Some of your clutch plates could be wearing out also. The clutch isnt disengaging the trans in time for you to make your shift. It is common with second gear a lot. new oil is a good suggestion but I would have your clutch/tranny looked it by someone who would know. Thats the only way to properly assess the issue. Or.. sell the thing and buy a Honda or Yamaha.. problem cured
