Re: 1999 CBR 600 F4 Doesn't want to go into neutral anymore
NDMBlackBlade: I'm thinking It's not the chain. I just replaced the chain a few months ago, and just adjusted it maybe a week or two ago. I'll look at it again, but it feels good.
SteelFalcon:Though I did change the oil about 500 miles ago, it was 10W40 which is what my manual says it takes. It's your 1st point that gets me though; there is a little drag when the bike is coming to a stop even with the clutch in, as if it's partially engaged
ridelikeaturtle: I'm thinking you might be right, I'm pretty sure it's the clutch, though I don't have my bike in front of me to look at right now. Basically, when I'm stopped (in first, with the clutch in) with the engine off, there's resistance to moving the bike backwards (as if its partially engaged). And when the engine is on, but i'm still stopped in gear, the bike creeps forward even with the clutch fully depressed, again implying its partially engaged.
Also, as an update, now it doesn't change gears at all when not moving. No amount of trying will get it to budge from 1st to 2nd, or neutral.
I'll check the clutch cable some time this week if that's what you think it is, (my clutch could also use a changing though, its loooose like crazy....perhaps that's it?) Unfortunately I don't know as much as I'd like to about the bike, I just know I want to avoid taking it to my local shop as much as possible. They're crap and they charge an arm and a leg.
Thanks for the help
