Look into the detent spring or the shift fork. My r6 broke its detent on a regular basis. the shift fork is more expensive. The mechanic told me that it kept breaking because the shift rod on the attack rear sets was shorter and put more force on the associated parts. I didn't buy it but I think it's possible.

Jumping out of gear once fully engaged is usually due to worn gear dogs on the transmission cogs. Bent shift fork can help round off the gear dogs as it doesn't fully slide the gears together for full engagement.

If it's either of those, I assume you'll need to fully tear down the motor and split the cases (Not exactly sure with this new motor design) to remove the transmission shafts and shift forks.... Very labor intensive and expensive..... Just parts for my old yamaha 600 were ~$450, and it took a solid 10 hours with no problems to pull the motor, disassemble, re-assemble, and re-install in the bike.

Good luck.

Shocker=another 600R with yamaha gearbox gremlins....I paid $1050 to have my tranny undercut and reinstalled with a factory pro shift kit, on the YZF600R. The yamaha transmission parts are a POS.

Actually in '00 a lot of GSXR750s had 2nd gear go...must be only Honda and Kawasaki that can build a decent tranny. Where are our 10/100,000mi power train warranties?

Alot of the D model ZX6's blew second also. Most of the time its the rider who doesn't shift with authority into second or in any gear for that matter. Gotta snap it into the next gear not just lift.

I should have said this earlier...the race shop that I go to told me to never use the clutch unless downshifting or coming from a stop, using the clutch allows you to screw up upshifts and destroy your tranny. Just an FYI.
As much as I want a Pazzo lever, I know that I never use the clutch, so I'm trying to be more sensible.
