HI all
Ive got a 94 CBR600F2 that just wont stay in 2nd gear unless I ride it like a baby.
Anytime I try to rev it over 3000 or need it to pull up a hill on take off it jumps out a over revs.
Its got to dangerous to ride so its now just sitting wasting rego.
Ive read quite a bit on other forums about shift kits, warn dogs, warn shift forks & busted or weak springs.
Can anyone help with a parts supply in OZ ???
& is it worth undercutting gears ???

thats not a safe idea when I have my 16 year old daughter on the back :thumbd:
Plus I dont wana blow the ass out of hole box & total the motor :nono:
Your talking about reving this **** out of 1st then hoping a double click up to third. NOT a real smart idea dude
You may pull that kinda dumb ass crap but I was asking for help from people whom have suffered the same problem.
But thanks anyways you did give me a laugh after a crap day at work :thumb:

This is my bike. 92 f2. Guess what DUDE, it pops outta second. Go figure. Looks like I've suffered the same problem. Rode ALL season with no 2nd. Rev the crap outta it? Is 3k too high for ya lil feller? Because that's all it takes to go from 1st to 3rd. Dumb ass crap? Learn how to ride, and you'll do just fine.

I'm not usually harsh in my posts, but don't be a freaking jerk and I'll grant you the same respect.

The problem is most likely worn dogs...

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.

thanks for the tips guys
As for learning how to ride, Ive been riding for 25 years both raod & dirt, so if I havent worked it out yet Im up **** creek lol
I guess Ill just wait a week until my new 10x8 meter shed is built & get stuck into it.
I always fixed my own bikes both road & dirt not to mention cars so it shouldnt take to long to get to the bottom of this issue.
Anyone have any good parts suppliers they can recommend for a shift kit & other trany parts ??
Thanks again for your help

Just an FYI, you need an impact tool or special tool for the clutch center bolt or it will be a real PITA to remove it. You're also not supposed to reuse that bolt. I use both, impact gun and special tool, takes like 2 seconds to remove. Without proper tools its an all day event.

I find bikebandit prices to be competitive for oem parts, and the shipping prices do not rape you like most.

Cheers for that Sabotage
Ive got a rattle gun & pullers if I need them
Plus Ive got a manual I scored for $10 at a swapmeet, I love swapmeets But this missus hates them. Probably due to the toys I find
