Question about 2002 Yamaha YZF 600 R thunder cat
The yzf600r has a large gap between 1st and 2nd gear. if you don't shift into second firmly every time, what happens it that over time the dogs which engage 2nd gear gets worn/rounded off, and the "falling out" starts to occur during hard acceleration in 2nd. once the problem is there, the only way to fix it is to replace the affected gears: 2nd and 6th ( the gear 2nd slides in to), the shift fork, and the shift cam.
this requires a complete teardown and splitting the cases. about $3-400 in parts, depending on where you purchase them, and 8-12 hours labor depending on your level of expertise.
a qualified shop would charge $1500-2000.
