    Thank you for your help. I have a spare engine thats only done 6k miles. i will replace the engine. Probly strip the old unit and make a bit of a project of sorting the gearbox.
    you have verified what i was thinking the fault is.
    Cheers

This is caused by the gear pack engagement "Dogs" inside the transmission being worn, you will need to replace them, this entails removing the engine from the motorcycle and then the cylinder barrels and then splitting the transmission cases, the job requires many special tools and factory training and manuals to complete the repair, unless you really know this work you can cause allot of damage. Bottom line? it is very expensive to fix and is a common issue with all Honda motorcycle transmissions on there high powered models. There is only one suggestion that I can make and that is to lower the idle down to the low end of the idle speed spec, which is about 850-1000 RPMs, that lessens the engagement bang. This information comes from a friend who was a motorcycle mechanic for years
