Hey riders,

I have a '96 6R with a bizarre problem:
When shifting into 4th gear, running medium to hard acceleration,
the
bike will seemingly take the gear, then sort of 'spit it back out'
resulting in the bike being stuck with what feels like the shifting
pawl 'stuck' between gears. Pulled the clutch the first time it
happened and by just doing that r/r on the clutch it would shift
again (did not suspect shifting pawl assy. at this point.)Rode it
and
it happened again, now with the cases split it appears that it may
be
the dadblasted pawl/shifting assy., which means I would not have had
to split the cases, anyway, the bike shop mech. told me it was the
dogs on the gears, that's why I split the case. Prior to all of
this,
from buying the bike with 3500 miles on it, it would occasionally,
under hard acceleration, 'spit out' 2nd gear, putting the tranny in
a
false neutral, repeating the shift with the throttle off somewhat
would let the shift take, bike shifted pretty smoothly otherwise. It
had also developed a problem where you would have to start it w/the
clutch lever pulled in regardless of whether or not the bike was in
neutral.
I guess what I'm looking for here is anyone that has had experience
with this sort of behaviour. If you can please respond directly to
my
email address. Thanks !

D.
P.S. I just found that the shift shaft will slide approx. 1/2" to
the right and thus not engage the shift drum gear, what is supposed
to prevent this ?
