Re: Another 94 CBR600F2 jumping out of 2nd
Just had the same problem also with my F3, rode the bike fine and just skipped second to avoid the problem while street riding. My build is meant for the track and it's retarded to not have 2nd so no 2nd gear is a no go but nothing dangerous about skipping 2nd. The problem is most likely fork/drum wear. It took me about three hours to fix and you do not have to drop the motor. It was my first time doing the job and the repair manual made it a breeze with no special tools required or surprises. The hardest part of this job should be deciding what parts to buy. A mechanic ideally would take your bike apart and determine what needs to be changed, measure as per the manual to make sure everything is with in spec and change only the parts that need to be changed, that's one option you can try. The next option is to just spend the $400 on the shift mechanicals and change everything not worrying about parts that may be good. I went with a third option and installed used parts, and only risked losing my time. The new forks and drum works great and I now have 2nd. I see used forks and drum on ebay for $30. Used parts are a risk but the biggest risk is your time so that's the direction i went with. Good luck with the job but its not hard if you're mechanical. The order I went to do this repair was plastic off (rear, lower and sides only), headers and muffler off, drain oil, clutch cover and oil pan removed (make sure you buy gasket kit to reinstall) and from there the manual let you know how to proceed from there.
