Gearbox issues

Hey ive had my 2010 f4 for a few weeks now, and the only thing i can fualt is the gearbox.... The gap between gears seems massive compaired to the jap bikes which is where my problems start

First i had problems 1st to 2nd... All my fualt

But the bike seems to some times jump out of second, only just after ive changed at high revs, and today it missed 3rd and 4th

The thing is the gearbox feels fine, very positive when shifting when just cruising around... So i'm thinking its just me, not shifting far enough? As i definatly admit the bike does rush me when i take it right up in the revs... Or is this a common issue

And is it possible with rearsets and the " not direct shifter" to shorten the gear shift?

Also there is only 5000k's on the bike.... It also seemed to jump from 2nd to 3rd today with a big over rev, really hard to pick wether its simply me, as when i only ride the f4 for a while i dont seem to have any issues, but today was definatly the worst ive seen it, but then i really launched it and didn't have an issue

Really want to get a good idea of whats goin on, and really hoping theres a way to shorten the shift, cause if i can shorten it, the bike will b perfect

Have you tried adjusting the gear-lever down just a little bit? There's a lot more pressure on the body when going fast, might be that you're just not pushing far enough.
These boxes are usually quite good.

I am not sure if this would apply to you but I had all kinds of issues with my gear box until the dealer replaced the shift spring, under recall for the 2011 model.

Yeah ive adjusted the shifter, took me a while but ive got it pretty good now, i think it could definitely be an issue on my side, i'm used to the fz1's gearbox which has a far shorter shift

Would really like to know if theres a way to shorten the shift by using the link type shifter rather the the direct one


And cheers for the shift spring info, can u explane the problems u were having?

you're pussy footing it.......best gearbox ever......i'm 'light footed' but push ALL the way

ask the folks at Bubba IV......i shift up or down no clutch....just keep the revs up a tad going down

you can shorten lever movement/reverse it with after market linkage and there is a factory reverse (GP shift) drum available for less than the linkage

100% with Donsy. Try adjusting the gear lever. I brought a new set of boots and I kept missing the shifts until I readjusted the gear lever ever so slightly.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

In my case, when in gear, I would have to press the shifter several times before going to the desired gear; also when shifting down, it felt like the gear box was full of marbles (best way I can describe it)

Cheers guys, got it figured... As i thought its more the fact that i'm used to the much shorter shift of my FZ1.... A few more tweaks to the shifter and its a lot better, but will still be looking to shorten the shift with a new shifter setup

Definately nothing wrong with the gearbox
