  • problem need help!!

    what's up everybody? haven't posted here in ages. i sold the tiller and bought an
    05 gsxr750. i left for colombia for about a year and a half for work. in that time i had the bike in my brothers garage and he was supposed to start it up every now and then and keep up on it. well he didnt. when i got back i drained the old gas and changed the oil and battery and she fired right up. now here's the problem. when i rode it it doesnt shift good. the shifter feels mushy and it;s kind of hard to change gears. once it's in 2nd it won't go into 3rd. it's almost like the shifter won't move at all like it's not returning to position or something. it shifted perfect when i left so i'm hoping maybe the clutch plates dried out from siting so long or something. hopefully i won't have to split the cases. any thoughts?

    That is a cable clutch, right. Is it out of adjustment? Do you have the manual.

    Any chance he did ride it and broke something?

    The fibers could be oil soaked and sticky. You could just order a new set of fibers and swap them out( OEM Suzuki, no matter what they cost)

      that's the first thing i thought of too so i adjusted the clutch per the manual. yeah it's a cable clutch. i can def say he didnt ride it as he doesnt know how to ride and doesn't have any interest in motorcycles. the bike basically sat in his garage the whole time. i'm hoping it's the fibers. i might just buy a set and see what happens. the steels should be good right?

        Yes, the steels are fine, unless the mileage is high or it has had a hard life. Don't buy aftermarket crap plates, you are trying to eliminate problems, not induce them.
