Not just a clutch. If it was the clutch, it would slip in the high gears under heavy power, ALL the time.
Slipping in and out of 2nd gear poses a problem for a lot of motorcycles. Throttle happy riders who make hard, redlined shifts from first to 2nd cause a lot of wear. Sometimes, (like in my case) a snap ring on the gear shaft brakes/comes loose and allows the gears themselves to slide a certain distance. Sometimes (also in my case) you can even crack the main gear bearing.
There will be a few riders repeating information that they heard on here saying it could be the "shift fork", which in 99% of the cases is just the aftermath of the gears being "out of whack".
A common problem with sportbikes is stunting- and what it does to your transmission. My 1st and 2nd gear wore on the deacceleration side, causing them to skip in and out of gear.
It's not a cheap, nor easy fix. Make the seller replace the clutch...if it doesn't solve it, don't buy the bike.
