If you like to drag race on the street and do a LOT of hard shifts the most likely will be worn dogs on the gears ... to find out put your bike in the gear that is popping out the most and gradually bring on the power ... if it pops out of gear anywhere before max, its the shift dogs ... tranny rebuild time. It's behind the primary cover and not a big deal for a HD tech but not something with which you want to experiment,

SOURCE: gear problems

Take it to the dealer to have a quick look at it, it could just be either a bit of running in stickyness or they forgot to check something was tightened up properly before you got your hands on it. Failing that, try an oil additive such as Slick50 in the oil tank, a fuel additive such as Redex in the fuel tank and if the engine's water / liquid cooled (spot the bike expert) stick something like Redline Waterwetter in the coolant tank... and it might feel a bit better (and last longer).

SOURCE: 99 KX 500 skips in 3rd gear

hello
when gears start to skip it is most likely one of towo things. either a shift fork is bent or the gear dogs are worn. when inspecting gears they may not appear to be broken or worn. what you are looking for is shiny worn dogs or slots on the gears. if they dont appear to have the newly casted look to them but yet shiny slightly worn spots. that is more then enough for a gear to kick out of place. next look at the shift forks. the pads of the forks should also appear to be new. under normal use these dont wear. so if there is any sign of scrapping, or shiny worn spots this indicates a bent fork. like i said these arent really noticeable at first glance but a good hard look will reveal these shiny spots that make a big difference.

there is an internal clutch adjustment on that bike that may not be properly set. call your local bike mechanic and they can tell you how it can be set properly.

Big twins can put a lot of stress on the spark plugs when under compression. You may also have a failing ignition coil, or a loose earth on your ignition system.

My 2005 r6 had all maintenance done chain and sprocket . new clutch and brakes but when i'm riding 3rd gear seams like the chain is slipping off then catching and when it catches it jumps to a high rpm ....


It sounds a lot like 3rd gear and shift fork need replacing, it seems a very common problem on the r6, jumping to a higher rpm would mean it is jumping out of 3rd and back to 2nd.
There is a slight possibility the spring and ball, that locate the shift drum,isnt holding it in gear.
