I have a 99 r1 and in 2nd gear at about 5 or 6 thou it sputters then it kicks in. I had it jetted and I think it may be a bad jet job but it only does this in 2nd. Im runnin a D&D slip-on and a Dyno jet kit. But I'll be going to see Ivan soon. I got 10 grand on the bike so Im going to get a new clutch. Any advise???:( :(

I had the same exact problem with mine and it only got worse. It is the tranny :cryin . I am about to replace mine in the next couple of weeks. Mine went from what you are talking about to not holding at all in second under full throttle in about 2K miles :cryin. Your best bet is to have it repaired now while the damage is minimal so you don't have to basically replace most of the tranny internals like I am :puke

Once it is gone you are loking at about 300.00 in parts and 800.00-1100.00 in labor depending on the person who does it. You have to pull the motor and split the cases to get to all the gear dogs and such:(

Yeah...what Twisted said :D

Since the motor has to be pulled, I am replacing it with a low mileage 2001 motor :D. Then I am going to rebuild my 99 motor for a graves stroker kit or turbo :eek:
