R1 Question

I have a 99 R1, when i'm in second gear at around 7 to 9 grand i get one or two clicks. it clicks like maybe the front sprocket is missing a link in the chain and the bike jerks a little bit. my chain and sprocket are brand new so i know thats not whats happening and it only does it when im on the gas pretty good and only in second gear......could this be my trans or clutch? please help.cuz w/o second gear im lost

I had the similar issue with my 01 R6. It would kinda hiccup in second gear .It got worse over time to the point where giving a good amount of throttle would make it pop out of gear. The delatbox 2 that yamaha used for a few years in notorious for this. Usually it require a transmission overhaul and I was quoted about $1000 for the job.

Ya I paid $3k for my bike and they wanted $1k to repair it. Ended up trading it in for $2400 towards my new bike instead of repairing it.

The Busa was bought new in 06 and pretty much did it since birth....They were notorious for it...has never caused any problems though other than frustration

Ya. The real issue is going to be finding someone with a tranny for sale locally, that hasn't got the same issue.

Sounds all too familiar. Mine was "jumping" under hard accel in 2nd and 3rd. My chain had about 17k on it and I knew it needed replacing so I thought for sure that was the problem, NOPE! So I change the chain and sprockets and on the way down the road home, guess what? She starts slipping out of gear in second. . . . . .

It did good out at MSRH in 3rd 4th and 5th gear


UNTIL I WRECKED

Before you go calling Yamaha and whatnot, maybe ask around and see if anyone can get there hands on an R1 motor for you.

I have an 01 R1 and my second gear did that then 2nd went out completly then the whole tranny went out with in 3 months. All because I keeped putting it off. It costed me $1200 to get a whole new tranny. so I suggest fix it soon before you end spending what I did.

That was new parts and labor everything internal was replaced. The only down side to getting a used transmission you dont know wut your getting and how long it will last and it may cost a little more but aleast you know itsnew and under warranty. That is just my opinon. I hope that helped your question some.

2nd gear has been a problem for bikes for a long time. When you shift from first you have to go thru neutral so 2nd takes a little extra hit.
If you ride hard after a while the engagement dogs get rounded off and it won't stay in gear.
The only thing you can do is open it up and replace the gears. It's a lot of work and takes knowledge so unfortunately it's expensive.
Call Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited. He will do you right and he gives a MH discount.

It will only get worse if you wait.
