Either the shift cable is out of adjustment, the system may need lubrication, or the chain may be worn out. Try some light oil on the chain and shift mechanism pivot points. If it is the cable, try to determine if the bike shifts more easily to a higher or lower gear. Try turning the little barrel adjuster where the cable enters the shift mechanism a half turn counter-clockwise. If that makes it better, keep doing that until it seems good. If that makes it worse, go the other way.

The chain feels and sounds like it's jumping gears or slipping on the rear sprockets. It does it in all gears. It is a diamondback wildwood large 20"


The rear derailleur needs adjusting, once to establish limits (so it can't go past high gear or low gear). Everything else is up to you fine-adjusting the shifter to make the bike run quietly. If you're careless about your gear changes, you'll get MOSTLY into one gear but not quite perfectly, so the bike is always trying to start shifting into another gear - that's the sound you hear, the sensation you feel. Fine-tune your shifter positions each time you shift - you'll find a "sweet spot" where the bike runs almost perfectly silently.

No, they can't readily do that at the factory, not with chain drives. There are just too many things that can affect gear changes, and things are in a slightly different position every time you remove & replace the rear wheel, or even loosen & retighten it. Unless you're ready to spend vast dollars on a foolproof shifter system, shifting cleanly is going to be your job and your job alone. It's one measure of your bike riding skill... and the better you get at that skill, the better you feel about it.

...and your bike will like you for it.

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.

A clunck noise changing gear


Hi
This does sound like a gearbox problem, either where the cogs lock together (the dogs go into recesses) or the shift forks themselves
The dogs do wear after high mileage which can make them slip out of gear
Ive never heard of a gearbox smoothing out over such low mileage, but I suppose it is just possible
You could get the gearbox 'blueprinted' (i.e. to manufacturers exact specifications) but this will cost a bomb !
Your best bet is to complain again & at least get a ride on another rocket3, or get it sorted under warranty

Ride safe

When I am riding in 2nd my 2000 Busa feels like it is jumping as I turn the trottle. I have to click through 2nd to 3rd if I want a smooth ride. what is wrong with 2nd?


Sounds like you've shredded a tooth off 2nd gear, Have dealt with this problen before and unfortunately involves an engine rebuild, it may be cheaper to source a second hand unit but beware this is not an isolated problem and you may purchase a unit with the same problem so make sure you get a guarantee.

Hope this helps

3rd gear har d to put in


Im not sure how you ride your bike but if you "beat on it shifting without cluch sometimes the fork in the transmission gets bent...this is the only reason that would cause hard shifting besides wrong gear lube

pull your clutch in on the left handlebar push the shifter lever down and let you clutch out slowly while giveing the bike a lil bit of gas. But if you don't know how to ride i wouldn't be jumping on a kx 250
