Gixxer transmission??????

Hey everybody. Been a member since Jan. and this is my first post. I know, I know.......I suck!!! Anyway, I'm wondering if someone can help me out here.

I own a 98 Gixxer 750 with a 20k on the odometer. I've been having a problem getting the bike to go into neutral when stopped. If the bike is still rolling it pops right in with no problem. But when its stopped, its a royal PITA!! Anyone got any suggestions as to what the probelm is and what the fix for it is? Thanks in advance!!

Tye

and how come so long to ?

In any effect I'm sure somebody either Roach or GSXRJack can help you on this... If it was a car tranny I may have more input on it...

But I'm interested in the response, cause my 9R does this sometimes...

Sorry, don't have an answer you're looking for. But, more than likely, you'll get it.

A few Q's

WELCOME to the site!

Ok tell us your habits. Clutch in at a stop: Four fingers or two. HAve you tried to let the clutch out just enough to drag the motor a little THEN clutch back in and shift? And do you downshift through the gears coming to a stop or do you wait till youve stopped, THEN shift down?

I always downshift when slowing down, i never wait till I'm stopped. At a stop I usually have 4 fingers on the clutch, unless at a redilght. Then I'll put it in neutral and let off the clutch altogether. I haven't tried letting the clutch out a little, I'll have to give it a shot. Sitting still, sometimes. I can bump the throttle a little and it'll slip in to neutral.

My SV does this at times, I find the best way to fix it is to snap back on the throttle a little and the tranny slips right in to neutral.

My friend has a '99 GSX-R 750, my first day riding he went with me. I stopped at a light, and couldn't get my 98 GSX-R 600 out of neutral. He explained to me that the bike seems to do that. He gave me the same advice that you discovered. Rolling the bike in place a bit seems to engage it again. He didn't know why it does it, so maybe it's a common thing amongst GSX-Rs?

I find this more common when my bike is off (as in not running). The only reason I know this is because I have been paying closer attention to it sense this thread.
