Cant find Neutral! - May 31, 2013, 09:21 PM

I just got a used 07 R6 (non r6s) with 2k miles and it wont go into neutral at a stop with the motor running. Motor off, it works fine, but when its running, it keeps jumping from first to second. If its really hot out, it works ok, but as soon as the sun goes down, it skips neutral. I am going to do an oil change, and I had a buddy adjust the clutch cable. Anything else should look out for?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

funny....was just talking about this...but Ive had over 13 bikes and one thing I noticed is that when the bike is cold...it tends to skip Neutral and pop into 2nd.
when im at long lights after just starting...I turn the bike off in 1st....then test after the bike warms up.

My mom's Vstar had the hardest fucking time going in to neutral. It was hit or miss when it would do it.

I was changing her oil one time and noticed that the neutral switch assembly had a crack in it and a bad o-ring.

I swapped out the Neutral Switch and the oil and now it hits neutral every time easily.

Drag on the clutch is my guess. Change oil, see if they helps.

Sometimes when fat bitches ride on the back it can be difficult to find neutral.

I also support the oil change, it can never really hurt...unless you don't add enough oil of course

Your bike just wears its sunglasses at night...

Seriously though - those bike idle high when they are cold and it makes shifting between 1-N-2 challenging. Wait until the idle goes down after the secondaries relax and it should be fine.

If you haven't done routine maint. on it thats another issue.

I'm not sure that it would cause the problem that you're describing. Just saying what fixed the issue we were having.

You could check the neutral switch by looking for it and making sure everything seems kosher with it.

Usually a bad neutral switch will make it so you can't start the bike without the clutch in, idle with the kickstand down, and the N light won't light up I believe. Worth a check either way I think.

I know this is where it's at on older R6's. Might be the same on your bike.

No, I believe it is that black wire running to the sensor on the gearbox(?)

It's what send the signal to the bike that it is in fact in neutral.

Some people have told me that it shouldn't have effected her bike the way it did, but fresh oil and replacing the switch made an immediate and marked difference.

May have just been the oil, but the switch needed to be replaced either way since it was cracked. It's plastic on her Vstar.
