Gear response

Hello All,

I have a 2000 ZX6R and am puzzled with an issue I am having. I wanted to get some idea on what can be the problem before having to deal with mechanics trying to bleed me dry. When I put the bike in any gear there seems to be slack on the chain. I don't think the issues is with the tension. What i mean is that the gear does not grab right way. So if I have it in first gear the bike can actually roll a little forward or a little backwards before the gear takes hold. The chain itself moving. This happens with all the gears. When riding and I switch a gear I can feel the tire jerk if I don't ease it into gear. Any ideas or suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Gear response

If chain is properly adjusted, is your clutch cable properly adjusted? Should have play in it

Re: Gear response

I had the same problem on my 9r - it was the rubber dampers ( p/n 92160-1485, qty 4), referenced in the post above) in the rear wheel (beneath the sprocket) - two were almost totally disintegrated and the other two weren't much better. Replaced them and problem solved.

Re: Gear response

Wow. Thanks for the replies. Is the replacement of the dampers complicated?

Re: Gear response

Remove the rear wheel, remove the sprocket and hub, the cush drives are right there. Black rubber pieces going around the wheel hub. Very easy to replace in about 10 minutes or so.
