2nd gear problems
I'm sure this has come up before. I have a 99 R6. When I bought the bike, the guy I bought it from said that he had to change second gear. I understand that second gear is the one that usually goes out as people miss this gear the most, usually hitting nuetral, then revving up and slamming into second.
Well, I don't know if he did this himself and didn't do it right, or if he paid somebody to do it and didn't pay enough, but the problem is this: under hard acceleration in second gear, the bike acts like it is jumping a tooth on the chain. This happens only in second gear, and only under hard acceleration. If I take it easy, no problems whatsoever. Has this happened to anyone else? What exactly is wrong? I consider myself a competent mechanic and would not be afraid to tear into the transmission. I have a factory service manual, but I would like to know what to look for when I get in there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I want to get this taken care of before the really good riding weather gets here.
Thanks in advance
