2nd gear issue

I have been told that this is the 900rr's only chronic problem. It jumps out of second gear. Is it an expensive fix? Time consuming? I'm a very proficient DIY guy so is it something I may be able to do myself?

Re: 2nd gear issue

Hi Doe, I have the same problem unfortunately.
I have already bought the new parts 2nd & 6th gears ready for the winter project, from what i can gather the hard part seems to be removing the engine, I am going to give it a go myself.
What's the worst that can happen

Re: 2nd gear issue

See this thread https://www.fireblades.org/forums/hon...n-problem.html nothing is impossible, i once fixed a ZX9r gearbox in a gazebo on the patio, as i didn't have a garage at the time.

Re: 2nd gear issue

I would hold off on buying parts until you have the engine out, be prepared as this will be a big job, but not hard. Make sure you buy a factory manual as this will help you big time.

I had the same problem on a FZR 600 years ago, it turned out to be the gear shaft, it had worn and was causing the bike to jump into neutral, once it hit 7000 rpm.

If you haven't done anything like this before try and find someone to help you.
