Re: 2000 GSXR 600 SRAD Clutch question
I find it odd that hte Clutch would be the problem if all of the other gears are working just fine.
Sounds to me more like a trans problem. They are noted to have a Shift Dent Start bolt come loose, I would start with that.
The grinding and sounds in first gear only tell me that it is not making a full shift into first and grinding the DOGs on the gears. This is bad will only get worse the more you play with it.
Shift Dent star and spring is the first place I would look. Of course, you need to remove the clutch to get to it anyhow.
