you can't get it in neutral? After a good long run on my bike, I have trouble getting it into neutral, I can downshift all the way to 1st, but when I click it up to go to neutral it just won't go, it just goes up into 2nd again. I have to play around with it anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes, but not always, just enough to piss me off. Is this common for anybody? :-?

i got that prob with my gsx-r too.. well sometimes.. just shift down to first and rev it up a bit... lets say up to 2 or 3k and than put it up smoothly. works for me.

ok thanks, that seems to be pretty much what I've been doing to when it does it, glad it's not just me. :)

I figured mine out, lead the shift with the gear, meaning start shifting, then clutch, don't clutch, then shift, pressure the gear lever down to shift but clutch right after, before it actually does. (don't actually follow through the downshift with no clutch) Since then it has never happened again, I just think every bike needs to be figured out.

^^ forget all that, gears on the gsx-r's are real sensative specially when you wanna put it on neutral, all you gotta do is slightly click it up, just alil bit and you won't have problems getting it into neutral again.
