ok, this is the deal-e-o.. on my 96' F3 everyting I shift into second, it grinds or it throws itself into neutral. Now, least yr when I threw a chain I of course replaced both sprockets. The same as before, 15-45. Didn't change the manufacture or material type. Yes, I pull the clutch all the way in. It seems like as if I have to slam the living heck out of it to go in with out cruntching. I've had no problem in any other gear. It's stating to wear on me. I've looked and looked at it, till I can look no more. :feedback

Did this start happening right after the chain/sprocket change?
Either way, it sounds like a bent shift dog to me. It happens... Only way to know for sure is to open up the tranny. :mad:
Not a major repair, but a little over my head...

Just my $.02. Good luck, Japbike!

Does the clutch drag any?? Maybe when you're sitting at a light with the bike in gear holding the clutch lever in, the bike tries to pull forward??? If so, then check/adjust your cable where it enters the engine case to make sure it's releasing all the way.

If not, then I agree - Bent Shift dog/fork...

as stated: Second gear worn, dogs etc. Check the gear number 5 while you're in there.

she's at about 20,000. I dont ride her as much as I should, but I also have an 01 929RR.. soI pick and chose whom to ride.

I've heard this from other F3 owners. It always seems to be just 2nd. How weird.

Check the easy stuff first. The first to second shift on most bikes has the longest throw of the shifter. Make sure that the shift lever and leakages are moving as far as they should be and that nothing is binding. Too much play caused by worn fittings can cause this problem. Check this out before opening the cases. Good luck.

It sounds like the dogs are worn and/or damaged to the point where the gear A & B cogs are not fully engaging, locking into position.

Could also be the 1 & 2 gear shift fork. Bent baby bent!

But start with some of the simpler checks before cracking the cases. Check and adjust the clutch cable as needed. Also check, adjust or replace the foot shifter apparatus. Otherwise, INTO THE CASES YOU GO!

SORRY
