Hi, Paulsauto and the usual suspects are:
1. Shifter pawl improperly adjusted.
2. Shifter drum improperly adjusted or damaged.
3. Shifter engaging parts/dogs badly worn or rounded.
4. Shifter forks bent.
5. Damaged gears.

If it is slipping from the gear it is in then it is probably the because the Shift Fork is bent, and you have to take the bike apart top to bottom. ZZR's are known for it. In order to reach the shift fork you must tear down the whole bike. Good luck with the work.

Hi, make sure your lever is adjusted to your foot. You can turn the linkage arm adjuster up or down to get a better throw on the lever. If you don't wear boots when riding, this is always a problem on a Kawasaki due to the positive neutral finder. The fist question you get when you call the Kawasaki Hotline is if the rider wears boots or not.
If adjusting the lever doesn't help the problem is internal. Under the gear change cover the items to check would be the pawl that rotates the drum and the detent arm and spring. If the edge of the pawl is worn, it won't move the drum far enough. If the detent arm or spring isn't working, it will want to drop into a false neutral. I've had very good luck by removing all of the parts and polishing them, removing any burrs and replacing the springs. If the problem isn't found under the cover in the gear change area then the only other solution is to pull the motor apart and inspect the tranny itself.

1998 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500, when getting on it and shifting from 1st to 2nd it drops to neutral, however when riding it normal it goes through all of the gears just fine. Only has the problem with 2nd...


This is normal for Kawasaki's...2nd won't engage until the gearbox output shaft is turning fast enough to locate the centrifugal lockout bearing. This is to make it easier to find neutral at a standstill...
