2007 R6 shifting issues - May 4, 2013, 08:26 AM

so i bought this bike yesterday, went and test rode it through all the gears after letting it warm to temp with the fan on to make sure it wouldnt have any over heating issues and it ran through all the gears properly and everything seemed to be fine... til this morning.

i started it up and let it warm to register temps on the cluster and rode it across town to the gas station to get it inspected. down into first-fine, up into second-fine; but would not find third.(or any higher gear obviously)

so i get it inspected and decide to try and run it across town... finally i get it to go into 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th... just running it back and forth through the gears and now it decided it wants to stick in 5th and 6th...but wont come out of those two gears.. help?!

oil change?

some times gears seem more sticky to me than others, but never get stuck in gear, so not sure how much that will help

If you cant feel or hear it. It may be a drum or shift forks are messing up.

Can you shift via rev matching (i.e. without the clutch)?

If you can, the clutch may need to be bled or adjusted.

+1 on an oil change.

Could be a lot of things. Start simple - is the shift arm linkage sticking? Even if it doesn't feel like it's sticking give the linkage a squirt of penetrating oil and see if it clears up the problem before moving on to other things.


Usually if it's something major the issue doesn't just come and go. But a sticky linkage will be all kinds of inconstant. Worse when the air is cooler usually.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Sorry I was working all day... Think I figured it out, the oil filter that was put on by previous owner is a cheap aftermarket filter which is too deep causing rubbing along the bottom of the shift rod which was not allowing it to "reset" itself in the correct position after shifting.. Will be changing it out first thing tomorrow morning before riding... Hopefully she'll be good to me and stop acting up



UPDATE: previous owner out a Fram oil filter on the bike that was 3inches which did not allow for clearance of the shift rod... Oem filter (2.5 inches) fits ands problem solved... Smh.
