Gear isn't Properly Displayed - April 29, 2011, 06:09 PM

I have an '06 GSXR600, and my bike has started to not display the correct gear when I come down, say before I hit a stop. The clutch and shifter works fine, and I can feel I am in the right gear, but the display either doesn't change or will if I push down again when in first. Anyone have this issue, and is it easily fixable? It's not extremely important, that I can tell, but I'd like to work on whatever the problem is myself if possible.

Have you drilled holes to install a new license plate recently?

Despite his avatar, stuff like that has been known to happen after careless drilling. Pierce the ecm, etc

It was a joke, but yea, sometimes it happens. I dunno if this will work but I do it on my car all the time to fix small electrical things, is there a main fuse to the ECU that you could pull and leave out for a minute or two?

I'll look around and see if I can find anything

Probably a bad sensor. If you google this, you'll see some forum posts here and there about it, particularly with the K6 gixxers.

Ha! You're right. It seems popular with K6 models. Bummer. Thanks for the help, guys.

K6 600s and 750s I think have a couple frequent electrical issues, if I heard correctly. They certainly aren't lemons though. Hope you don't have to spend too much on this. Heck, you might want to just get hold of a service manual, see where the sensor is, and start by making sure it and the surrounding area are clean and dry.

We get this all the time. Usually you can pull the gear position sensor out and clean up the contacts or just replace it.

Very easy to do. I have done it a few times (cleaning and replacing) on Suzuki's I have owned.
