My 2001 yzf 600 is stuck in neutral. whats wrong?

This bike and many of the 600 class lose 2nd gear and slip out on hard acceleration, then at easy acceleration as it wears more and eventually the kicking out of gear can bend a shift fork, the parts are not extremely expensive but the labor is going to be high because of a complete removal and teardown.

I have a 2002 yzf r6 when i get up to 50mph in 2nd gear it slips into newtural

Sounds like your second gear planet gear is not fully engageing, it could be worn down. also the shift fork could be out of adjustment. If you hold it in second, will it stay?

2001 YZF 600 R thunder cat: Yamaha yzf 600 Thundercat when under heavy load or...

Many YZF 600's have a problem with second or third gear, under heavy accelleration they will jump in and out of gear, the fix is in the gear selectors,an internal box problem.
If it is a clutch problem, ride in top gear at 100kl\hr and give the clutch lever a flick, see if it grabs or slips for a while and then takes up.

It slipps between first and second and slipps more between second and third.all other gears are fine.

Transmission needs looked at by a specilist. The repairs aren't something that you will be able to do.

Slips out of 1st and 5th

Have you checked your transmission fluid level and your transmission filter? That's a common cause of slippping.
