bike wont go neutral plus dead battery now

Im not sure what happened but i gave bike a wash then when i tried to start saw it was not in neutral so i clicked and couldnt get it to go.

Tried to get bike going to go into gear but it just kinda bogged. Battery dead now. Jumped using a car and when i went to turn on it went to neutral. Rode around in first around 4k rpm. When i came to stop it wouldnt go nuetral.

What am i missing here? Its a 2001 r6

Re: bike wont go neutral plus dead battery now

You know 1st is down from N position, right? Not being an ass for the record. Just asking. Had a friend not know that and you said you haven't rode that long. You've tried rolling it as you shift through the gears and letting out the clutch until the gear catches? Then try to gear down again. Sometimes if the clutch is still in, it won't down shift until you let it out and let it catch. Could be bogging cause its in 3rd??

Re: bike wont go neutral plus dead battery now

pretty sure it just went to second because when i rode around i kept it in first. then went for neutral. Thats when i think it just went to second because it would bog when i tried to go. I can get bike to start with stand in and clutch in. The gear only goes up and down w/e it is

you sound like a newer rider, so you may just be giving it a little too much pressure for it to hold in neutral. i remember when i got my bike, i had trouble with this. then i also had trouble when i got my mx bike. turn the bike off, but leave the key in the on position. now just move it a bit without pulling the clutch. it should only roll a few inches. in that few inches of back and forth motion, apply a bit of downward pressure on the shifter(still without pulling the clutch). you should feel it click. if not, you may already be in first. if it wont click down, do the same and try to click upwards. keep an eye on your gauges. see if the neutral light blinks for a second. when you find where it blinks between those clicks, you have neutral. now you just have to keep it there

and this just hit me. your bike MAY be converted to gp shift. in that case, all the gears would be backwards. click up once from neutral to get to first, and down to get to the rest of the gears. to figure out if its gp shift, look at the shift rod. if it mounts to the top of the shift drum(12 o clock), it is gp shift. if it is on the bottom(6 o clock), you are standard

Re: bike wont go neutral plus dead battery now

When the trans won't go into neutral: start the bike, LIGHTLY let out on the clutch until the bike gets into it's friction zone (begins to pull lightly). Pull the clutch back in and attempt to find neutral again.

Re: bike wont go neutral plus dead battery now

Ill go try but yesterday i rode for 4 hrs and never had a prob getting neutral. And my gear box is 1 down 6 up. I went through all gears yesterday. Could my neutral switch not be grounded? If so how do i pull that out from back of engine?

could it be the battery? I keep having to jump it now
