Neutral no workie HELP!

Just bought my first bike. It is a 93 GSX R 600 with an 1100 motor out of a 95. No matter how hard I try I can't get it in neutral. Anyone have any idea? Shifts just fine otherwise. I work on my own cars but this bike is a new animal and I know nothing about them yet.

Hmm. It just shifts directly into second? Does it feel like it wants to go, but slips out into second or first (when trying to get in N from second)?

Can a worn clutch cause this?

Adjust the freeplay at the clutch first, or bleed the fluid if it's a hydraulic clutch. Then go from there.

a little off topic, but how is your clutch is activated? because the 93 gsxr600 used a cable and the 95 gsxr1100 uses hydrolic. i guess the 1100 controls were used?

i wonder if a shift fork was bent.

but just a few more questions: does the bike completely disengage with the clutch in or does it try to walk a little?

And to check the plates... put them on a large piece of glass. Not a car window but like a door wall, or glass table.

I could not eveb tell you where the clutch is on this thing. I just took it to the shop, hopefully they'll at least lube up before I bend over.

Good to know! I'll figure this thing out over time. You know the first thing I did was go into a Motorcycle chat room and asked what was wrong with it. The only response I got was you have a bent shifter rod Dummy! Gee thanks jerk.

BTW here is a pic of it that the previous guy sent me. I of course have taken the tacky chrome stickers off it.
