Sounds like either worn dogs or incorrectly adjusted shift linkage.

yep prob worn dogs. how many miles? happened to me at 2500 miles. NOT under warranty. $1600 later. fuckin kawi bunch of assholes.... actually talked to the tech at the dealer yesterday, as i was getting my new pilots balanced. that 1 in 5 track bikes are losing 2nd and 3rd. and yet kawi still denies this as being a problem. and DO NOT USE FULL SYNTH oil in an 05. or you will be asking for problems. AND FOR THE REST OF YOU. say what u want about "ive been using synth for..." whatever. ONLY 05 and up has a prob with synth oil. kawi knows it and will do nothing. so do what u want with ur oil, just be careful. i for one will NEVER use synth in this bike again. the benefits arent worth it. what else could i have done with my $1600???
