Alrighty I am new here and I need some help. I just got my first motorcycle and there seems to be a problem with it. It is a 2001 r6 and when I am shifting from 1st to 2nd it misses the gear sometimes, and goes into neutral. I really have to hit it hard to go into 2nd. Any ideas?

Sorry for just check this section...

Are you holding the clutch in tight when you are shifting....

Lets hope that is the only problem...

Again sorry...

Welcome to the forum, but I'm sorry to say is doesn't sound good. Do a search for "second gear problem" you will find all you need to know.

Mine is the same...sometimes it goes into 2nd fine, others it's a bitch and I hit neutral.

Just shift like a man?

The fix may be as easy as swapping out a spring. Only costs about a buck. Here's a link with the part number and some OK instructions. Should be self explanatory though. Its worth trying to fix this cheap part before tearing into the motor to swap gears.
