'96 CBR900RR Slips from 2nd to Neutral While Accelerating

My 1996 CBR900RR will pop into neutral when accelerating in 2nd gear. Does that sound like a bent shift fork? The other gears do not have any problems and otherwise the bike runs great.

Thanks for any help,

Mark

Sounds more like worn dogs to me.

Are dogs accessible from under the clutch, or does the engine and transmission have to be removed from the frame?

Forks and dogs require splitting the cases.

Looking at my maintenance manual, it looks as though the forks are accessible from under the clutch.

There is only one way to find out...

You're right - the manual does indicate you can pull the forks by removing the clutch and sump which could be done without pulling the engine.

Re: '96 CBR900RR Slips from 2nd to Neutral While Accelerating

Does that mean that the dogs are accessible from under the clutch as well?

The dogs are part of the gears themselves so, no.

Thank you for your help. Even though it's bad news, at least I know what I'm dealing with.

You could do the second gear fork first and see if it's better and you might be able to avoid splitting the cases.
Forks often get bent as dogs wear due to the rider kicking the lever in frustration or trying to hold the gears in and such so they need to at least be checked anyway when you replace the gears. A worn or bent fork can cause the dogs to not fully engage and eventually result in the dogs wearing round.
