...to add to the confusion.
The recalls on the 98 R1 were:
1. Clutch basket fractures around cush drive springs.
2. The glue that held the brake pad friction material to the backing plates could let go.

There never was a problem with second gear, at least not officially.
The problems with second gear is related to ham-fisted (ham-footed?) riding. Luckily it´s not too hard to fix yourself.
