Hi all,

I have been riding since 1984. Have had lots of bikes including my favorite, RZ350. I just recently (Monday) picked up a long sought after ‘06 R6 50th. I have put about 75 miles on it.

My problem I would like input on from the community is, the dreaded shifting issue. I have gone thru all the threads (well most) and came up with a concern of bent forks. The bike has 4400 miles, clean, no damage., good tires, and short test ride ok. Prior owner put a slip on and sprocket on. Bought at dealer so not much more info. Once I put 30 miles on it and it got up to temp I noticed it would not drop from 3rd to 2nd, then 1st without working it. Dealer allegedly did full service, Pdi. I waited for the bike for 3 hours. I thought it may be clutch, so I adjusted at bars and case. It is engaging fairly smoothly. It does not make a difference. I am not sure what I read about alignment on the dot and case, if that matters.

Any thoughts. Worried it needs transmission work and dealer may put it on me since I did not get warranty and it is used. I can fix most stuff, but not willing to crack the case open.

Thanks for reading.
