    gearbox trouble?

    Hello gents.

    Having a little trouble with the drive on the rex. Under power it seems to (very shortly) pop out of gear in third, usually between 4-6k revs. It feel like a short break in drive, kicking back in rather harshly. NO crunchy noises and mechanical chaos from down low. My first suspicion is the gearbox, probably the selector for? Another idea might be the side stand switch cutting ignition for a split second. Never had a problem like this before so maybe someone here can give some good pointers. Hope so at least

    some background info:
    zrx1200r 2002
    110.000km
    EBC clutch plates in a damperless clutch hub. (rather clunky because of the EBC's don't have the cork plates)

    Possibly the chain trying to jump a worn front sprocket?

    chain and sprockets are on for about 6000km, looking like new (scottoiler). tension is good, so don't think it's that

    I think your first suspicion may well be correct.... bent selector forks?

    aye seems like it. Another member on the dutch forum has the exact same thing. I only have a general understanding of gearboxes so hard to say what part is failing
