My 06 is having a hard time going into neutral? It wont come out of gear or anything like that just takes me 5 mins to get in neutral . like going up from 1st is hard as hell. Is this my friction plates? If so which ones should I go with?

If this happens mostly when stopped with the engine running, and shifts OK otherwise, it's a clutch drag issue.

The common causes of a clutch not releasing completely are improper adjustment, worn, especially warped, clutch plates, uneven clutch springs, and a badly notched basket or boss (hub).

I seem to have the same issue. Mine was that way from the factory. Switching oils helped a bit, but still isn't as easy as it should be. BTW, I use Amsoil now.

Pull the clutch apart and see whats bad. Then replace whats messed up. Stock friction plates are good and cheaper/better than most aftermarket clutches. As far as the basket goes... you can file down the groves or replace with an aftermarket basket.

I have the same clutch as Ga does. It's been in the bike for all of the 3.8 years I've had it, and it's been completely perfect the entire time. You know that except for the arm that's included for the '03, and the boss spring, it's Hinson stuff, right?

My stock one fades rather quickly. I tend to feather the clutch. I know that I'm not supposed to, but I do. I usually go through 1 a year. And I was wondering how the GYTR handles abuse. Or should I just stick with the stock fibers???

Mine takes everything I can give it and never whimpers. I run a 15/49 almost everywhere, and that means when ever it gets tight or slow, I'm on the clutch lever. Not really a steady diet of that kind of stuff, but it's significant when it comes up, and the clutch is 4 years old. I'm impressed with it.

Thats awesome!!!! Do you have it on your '06 also? And I might have missed it, but did you pair it with a Hinson basket?

Thanks for the feedback Chad

it is in my 03...and this clutch is so much better than my stock new 06 clutch...it is ridiculous....engagement points, starts everything...it works so much better than a stock clutch....but it does cost....full hinson with GYTR...over 1000.00....but it is worth it to me.

I will put this in my 06 when it is time for a new clutch:thumbsup:

Same as the Georgia guy, 100% full Hinson. The GYT-R clutch hardware is Hinson stuff, too, and costs significantly less, so shop some of that.

Don't have it on the '06....yet.

Part number 2S2-18140-00. This went out on my 06. It sits behind the clutch basket and indexes the shift drum. the job is 30 minutes. the part it $13.00 use a magnet and make sure all broken parts are recovered and accounted for.

Matt,mine does the same thing,and its brand new!,first,make sure you cable
has the right amount of "Play"in it,second,(if it's new) give it a chance to break in,let all the internal parts get the proper "Polish "to them...if it's
been"Used"...take Gray's advice...IMO,I believe they design the shifter drum
notches to be very close between 1st and 2nd,so the neutral notch is rather
small,to avoid a false neutral upon upshift...but I'm assuming that because
I never had one in my hand to inspect..ED

Finding neutral, while stopped, engine running, is a common problem....put it in neutral as you coast to a stop, or shut the motor off, rock the bike back and forth to find neutral......Neutral 101 class is over....
