Trans giving me issues... Need some advice! - June 3, 2011, 12:35 PM

I tried asking this in the R1 forums, and the best answer I got was, 'insect the gearbox'.... -___- It's a '98 R1, if you haven't figured that out yet.

My bike has ~56K miles on it now... The other day, it started giving me issues shifting. The trans didn't want to change gears. Clutch or no clutch, stomp, or gentle shift, it would get 'stuck' in a gear. 1 to 2, 2 to 3, 3 to 4... All of them. I say it got 'stuck' in gear b/c it wouldn't change into neutral from 2nd, or 1st, vs getting stuck in neutral and not engaging either 1st or 2nd.

I notice if I wiggle the shifter in the opposite direction of the direction I need to move the shifter to change gears, the bike shifts just fine.

The problem is present sometimes, sometimes it isn't. There doesn't seem to be a correlation with engine temps... Sometimes I'll go for a long ride, and it'll be fine, but other times, it'll start acting up after five minutes.

Any ideas on what the issue might be? The bike's my only ride right now, so I can't afford much downtime.

Wouldn't say the gearbox but sounds like what I had with my 04' I ended up having to replace the clutch and it has worked fine since and that was about 20k miles ago. When was your last oil change?
