Slipping out of 2nd gear?
« on: May 18, 2014, 03:33:19 PM »
After experiencing and having the dealer replace the ECU to fix the bike shutdown issue, my TT has now developed an annoying intermittent problem with slipping out of 2nd gear.
Doesn't do it under the same conditions every time, but usually happens when it's under load, (2 people and/or @ 7K RPM).
Has anybody else had, (having?), this experience?

I haven't. Does it go to 1st or neutral?

Hi Ernest,
It goes to neutral....

I should also mention that after it had happened to me a couple times, I've made sure my fingers were entirely off the clutch lever, (just in case it wasn't due to a clumsy shift)

Sounds more like a common problem with the 1983-85 Yamaha Ventures, caused by a cheap nylon bushing that wears too fast and the 2nd gear starts to not hold in gear  intermittently.  I hope the TTSE doesn't have the same problem! It's a very difficult thing to fix.  It took about 2.5 years to show up in some after this model came out. Just sounds so similar.

We'll I hope not, but funny you should mention that!
My last bike was a 1984 Venture, although the 2nd gear issue had been fixed long before I owned it.

I've owned my 84 Venture since new, but so far, no trace of the 2nd gear problem

Whops . . .I seem to be in the wrong forum!
