Missed shift

If you miss the shift from first to second and hit neutral instead, how do you get the bike in gear?

I know what Bevo is talking about. When this happens, release the clutch, then reengage then try to switch gears.

You guys act like a motorcycle clutch always works like a charm. He knows how to fix this problem, but what he's asking is if there's another, or a better method to it, and unfortunatly, all bikes do this, but this is the only way.

Honestly, I think he's around. And you forgot to say that you shift up rather than down. Maybe the kawi gearbox just sucks, but I've been in that situation about a thousand times.

I was at the track and hard on the throttle when I shifted into neutral. I had a hard time getting the bike back into gear. What's the best way to get the gears synched back up? I released the clutch and tried again to shift but the gears wanted to grind

changing gears incorporates "unloading" the gearbox (even if for fractions of a second), matching engine speed with wheel speed and positive mechanical engagement.

Be patient, allow the rpm's to drop then try again,
or
use the unrecommended technique, just slam the fugger up into gear through the grinding and worry about bent "dogs" etc later

I first saw the title to this and thought, "Bevo missed his work shift and is out playing on some twisties somewhere."

That's what I wound up doing. It just seemed like forever being in neutral at speed.

i hate having the same problem rolling up to a light. Kick it neutral to roll up to the light and before you stop, it turns green. You have to slam it in 2nd!

This used to happen to me when I'd coast to a distant red light in neutral, then the would change to green before I'd get there.

Trying both 1st and 2nd used to slam gears no matter what I tried.

Now I just coast it in first all the way to a stop.

I seem to have a problem every once in a while between I think 4th and 5th, every once in a while it's like I miss the shift somehow and I get this shatter in the gear box... I always grab the clutch again when it happens... I'm not sure what's going on with that.

Good question. I never know what to do either .. I grab some brake to slow down a little and slam it into 2nd CRACK.. I always feel bad but it's better than running off the track

Yea, I'm wondering if blipping the throttle with clutch either out or in makes any difference

I cringe when I do this and even after a rev or such, I hate that slamming "clunk" the tranny makes when you finally shift in.
