I've noticed recently that sometimes when i try to shift from first to second using the clutch the bike will go into neutral even with a good amount of force upwards. Then cruising in neutral if i try to hit it up to 2nd again it just makes a loud trying to shift sound and stays in neutral ... I have to wait a sec just cruising in neutral and then eventually it will shift into 2nd but it sounds kinda harsh when it does... It doesnt happen every time i shift and rarely happens if i shift without the clutch, my newbie riding skills or mechanical error??? ( '02 gsxr 600 ) thanks.

try taking the load off the tranny by letting off the gas and then going fron neutral to second should go right in with no problem

I could be a bent fork or something like that but I've had that problem with all the bikes I have ever owned I have heard of people replacing there shift forks and stuff but I never did. I just shift a little harder going from 1st to 2nd. (this is a common compaint on Kawis)

First, yeah probably 'newbie soft foot'......

Second, you can adjust the shifter down some and it should help.

I've had that problem on a R6 before and a couple of hondas but I just got use to using alittle more force and that solved the problem.

Click it harder. The most difficult shift is first to second. You have to press it firmly and positively to make it happen.
