Well just steer clear of the synthetic stuff for the ceebee. I put synthetic oil in mine and every now and then my bike would slip out of 2nd to neutral. I talked to my mechanic and he told me to stay on honda's gn4. Synthetic oils may perform better over longer periods of time but are higher in viscosity which can lead to clutch slipping.

lol...no i absolutely not... once i am done shifting, i pull my feet back on the foot peg and only my toe is on the peg and heel is way back..!! So that eliminates any chances of unplanned/unknown shifting...but thanks for that..!

KRA5H, what you are saying might be the reason, but if it was to be, it should have had happened all the time after the last servicing (6000KM)...but it has been happening lately (approx after 10000km)(sorry, not trying to be a pain in the A55)...but still i'll ask the mechanic about that...!!

Also, after all these replies i feel that its nothing serious and the mechanic guys shouldnt just rip me off for nothing...!!!

Not necessarily. How you engage the clutch is a factor as well. Some shift rougher than others and so you're saying EVERY time you shift this happens? It started happening to me about a day after I put castrol's synthetic oil in and that was a couple weeks after my first service (at 728 miles). Not that it happened every time I shifted but it did happen enough to annoy me. All I know is that it stopped after I switched oil. The symptom definitely sounds clutch related so try switching your oil and give it 2 days worth of riding. If that don't fix it and the problem persists try at looking at your gear shifter to make sure that it is tightened properly and is functioning correctly. A loose shifter can also cause clutch slipping or worse clutch lock (which i had to fix on my buddy's yzf600 after he screwed up his clutch cable install).

Troubleshooting is a pain i know but if you can accurately diagnose the problem without a trip to the mechanic, then not only have you saved money, you've gained a better understanding of your vehicle.

Take it back to the Dealer and get them to sort it. Should be covered by warranty.
