    Finding Neutral

    Ok guys, help me please!
    My 2017 S1000XR starts up from cold and gear finding is great, including locating neutral.

    When bike is hot though, getting neutral is a nightmare and it disappears.

    Ive done all the adjustments at lever, up and down the way to no avail.

    Switch hot engine off and neutral is found easy peasy. Switch hot engine on and it’s a nightmare again, and disappears.

    It has the quick shift pro which is brilliant.

    Anyone help please. Bike is now in Parks Motoradd for fixing!!

    I can't tell if you mean the foot lever or the hand lever.  Check the slack on the hand lever, it changes from little slack when cold to a lot of slack when hot.  It's what comes to mind since your problem is temperature related.

    Is the answer in here?

    I’ve not checked the end of the thread to see if there is a definitive answer, but could be some useful suggestions.

    Jim

    Whether aftermarket or original, lever should have ~1mm of freeplay when engine is cold. When engine is warmed up this will be 4-5mm.
