SOURCE: Hard to select neutral

Difficulty in selecting neutral is most likely due to clutch drag. Does the bike jump forwards when you select first gear? This could be due to dry or wrongly adjusted clutch cable. Another though less likely cause could be weak clutch springs or a worn clutch basket. Aim for about 5mm free play at clutch lever.

Never heard of the cam chain getting dirty. There is a mechanism on the front of the engine to tension the chain on that bike I believe. I would try tightening the tension a bit to see if that will help.

When I take off in first gear every single time then there is a clicking sound that almost sounds like the chain is getting caught on something. It does not hold back from excelerating although the noise...

Thanks for the inquiry!
From your information I can't tell if this is a off-road bike or a street bike. With the extended swing arm I'm suspecting off-road. In either case it's very much same issues. You have two issues and we will deal with them separately.
Chain catching sound:
In low gear when you have maximum torque applied to your rear sprocket & wheel many times the primary sprocket (smallest one under the engine side cover) will slip and actually jump teeth. You indicated this is the third season, so it's seen a lot of wear. It would also explain that when you adjust/ tighten the chain tensioner the noise is gone as the front sprocket is not slipping in the chain. If this happens a couple of times the front sprocket is ruined. Pull the front sprocket cover and inspect the teeth. The teeth will be smooth and ground away if this has occurred. Most off-road riders go through 1 - 2 sprocket and chain sets per season with the abrasion form the sand and mud if they are serious about their riding. Replace front sprocket or both sprockets & chain.
Other possibilities are that you have lost your chain guide or the plastic wear plates inside the chain guide are gone and the chain is banging against the metallic sides or your swing arm making the chain jumping sound you have described. Replace the guide or wear plates to solve this.
Whooping sound on front of bike while coasting: This familiar sound appears to be related to your front wheel. The best way to test this is to set your bike on a bench, crate, or test stand so the front wheel/tire is off the floor/ground and spin the wheel. Your rim may be bent allowing the tire to rub against the fork tubes or front fender making the whooping sound. The engine noise drown's it out under power but noise is audible when coasting with the clutch in and engine idling. The simple fix is a spoke tightening and adjustment to properly true the wheel. You will hear if its a bearing or something else being rubbed against by a wooble or something out of round (run out) causing the whooping sound.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.
Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.
Happy cycling,

Riding today and at 35 to 45mph slaping noise from primary chain area took off cover found chain very tight adjusted rerode bike now making noise a 55 to 60mph what do you think it due for 20k service.

If your bike is equipped with the newer self tensioning primary chain adjuster, it should have felt tight. This type of tensioner keeps the chain tight by using primary oil in the tensioner. I'd take it to the dealer for service if it's due.

Good Luck

I garaged my GSXR from the start of November due to the cold in Scotand where I live. I went out and started the bike up once a week (should be more I now but I keep it at my girlfriends house). I left it...

You are operating the motorcycle on its center stand and in gear without a load so you are going to get a huge amount of lash from the chain and more importantly in the clutch assembly. It's really not a good idea to start it up and run it through the gears without a load on it, just not wise.

If you want the motorcycle to survive the cold months purchase some fuel stabilizer here is a web site with a good one page read.

Add the correct amount to what the tank has in it (you can guess) put the cap back on an shaker it up a little my sloshing the gas around a little to get a good mix.Fire up the motorcycle and leave it in neutral run it long enough to get it up to temperature and have the fuel stabilizer go through the fuel system. Shut it off and the only thing you need to attend to is the battery make sure it has a charge in it by purchasing a trickle charger. I leave my bike alone all winter after using the fuel stabilizer in it for a tank of gas. It's parked in my studio under cover and left till spring, the room never gets below 20c or 68F and charge the battery in the spring.

Cheers have a great day

Grinding noise

If the 'grinding' only happens when the bike is in motion, the problem is probably not inside the engine. Remove the chain and then start the motor. Put it in gear(s) and listen for the noise. No noise eliminates the engine as the problem.

Now lay the chain on the concrete and 'compress the chain in a straight line. Mark the end of the chain on the concrete. Now hold on to one end of the chain and stretch the chain. Did it stretch more than one inch? Replace it if it did. Look at the chain. is it rusted? Is it limber or do the links resist bending? Replace the chain if rusty and stiff.

While you are doing all this, check the rear wheel. Does it spin freely. Make any noise? Does the rear brake go on and off properly? Next check your sprockets. A bad sprocket will ruin a new chain. The ends of the teeth on the sprocket should be rounded. A worn sprocket shows pointed teeth. I have seen teeth so pointed they could pop a balloon. LOOK at both sides of the front and back sprockets. Are they rubbing against anything anywhere? Look at the chain, any rubbing? Is the tire rubbing on anything? Did the prior owner install heavier sprockets and bigger chain than stock sprockets and chain? > Check with the dealer.

Chances are you will find the problem if you do the above.
I hope you can rate this solution as a 'FixYa".
