    Question Need a good Honda mechanic

    2008 CBR 1000RR.

    Heres the problem: When shifting from 1st to 2nd, I get stuck on neutral. Once in neutral , I really have to work to get it into 2nd gear. Once I get it into 2nd gear, I have no issues. No lag or loss of power. No slipping. Hell, coming out of Homesteads turn 8 yesterday, I couldn’t keep the front wheel down! And I don’t really have issues going from 2nd to neutral to 1st. I will say that it seems like it is clunking harder than usual when I put it in 1st.

    So, I have no idea what it might be. Clutch? Transmission? I am open to any suggestions for a reliable mechanic that knows their sh*t.

    ***I tried getting in touch with Chad, but he has just left the grid ***

    These Guys are like 'Hens Teeth'. You could try asking Melka if he knows anyone in the area. http://www.proflowtech.com/

    I am also looking for a good tech since Donny has moved on.

    I know Melka still uses Jimmy Scala, who used to own the shop that chad worked at years ago, before closing the shop down (Kinetics MotorSports) and then they both went on their own. Jimmy still builds melka's race engines..
