Re: False Neutrals at the track


skip to 7:15 mark. This is from june, during a private track day group, good times.

I THOUGHT it was a false neutral, but it actually shifted thru second and into neutral. still the same outcome of slamming down on the lever. I can tell you the bike was a LOT more sideways then the camera plays it out to be.

That is exactly where I had mine at! Turn 5, Charlottes Web, Barber this past weekend but mine was a violent CLUNK CLUNK CLUNK, sounded like the chain was slapping the swingarm. Happened 4 times to me this past weekend. I tried to shift up, nothing tried to go down nothing, hit is again, I was in second gear, ass end shaking like mad. I saved it, went into the grass. I'm wondering if the tranny is fixing to take a shit. After getting back on the track, I was literally stomping on the shifter to make sure it was going into gear.

don't.. do... that...
It's a proven method for bending shift forks.

if ya do find yourself with a false neutral. it's better to upshift vs. downshift. Going down could result in a highside if you end up in a low gear and dump the clutch. And it's easier to get the bike in gear in this situation upshifting anyway.. and when you do get it in gear, worst problem is the rpm's may be a tad low. not a real problem.

I know there is all kinds of talk about "if you track ride/race ya have to GP shift".. i find standard shift (street pattern) much easier for me, and (knock on wood) I can't remember the last time I had a false neutral (oh yea, it was riding for an endurance team, and the bike was GP shift.. )

Re: False Neutrals at the track

False neutrals... never had any experience with them until track days! Never on the street, but I'm also not riding it like a track obviously. Of the times I've had them, fortunately I was able to coast through the corners but immediately getting my hand up just to notify anyone behind me that I'm not on the gas. Mine also sounds like that awful chain slapping LOUD clunking noise. Some are on video but I'd have to find 'em.
