Hard time getting out of neutral - July 24, 2006, 06:15 AM

Sitting at a stop I will put the bike in neutral, when it is time to go I SOMETIMES cant get the piece of sh*t out of neutral. Doesn't matter how hard I hit the shifter it just wont go. When this happens the only way I can get it into gear is to accelerate and hold down the shifter at the same time. This is a new zx 6, was thinking it was something that would loosen up over time, but I have about 500 miles on it now and it is still happening. Any idea's?


My bike run's on snake oil.... thanks to BG.

the cable probably needs to be adjusted. It's not really a "mileage" sort of thing. It's more of a "as needed".

not all the time but every 600 miles or so or whenever you think it might be getting out of alignment making it hard to shift or the shifting is not as smooth. this is a good time to do an oil change, chain adjustment, tighten all major bolts, etc

try releasing the clutch all the way, then engaging the clutch again. my bike plays funny tricks on me like that too. and if i just release and re-engage it goes back to normal

Actually i think this a KAW issue. My 03 ZX6-RR does that sometimes too.

Just roll the bike forward or back a few inches or so. That usually takes care of the issue.

Just double clutch it. Not uncommon on any sportbike.

+1, happens on my suzuki sv650s sometimes at red lights too. Just slightly roll a few inches forward or back and it will engage the gear. I just consider it a minor annoyance.
