Shifting problems..

Hi guys,

I have a K8 GSXR 1000 with a little bit modifications such as:

Yoshimura full exhaust
K&N Air Filter
Annitori quick shifter
Vortex 520 sprockets + D.I.D Chain

Anyway the bikes engine is running great, but Iím having most problems from shifting!!

Here is whatís happening:

1-Whenever Iím trying to shift from 1st to 2nd gear on a high RPM, it shifts to neutral and itís impossible to shift it back to 1st plus I can feel the chain in the shifter and itís happening either Iím using the quick shifter or using the clutch.

2-whenever Iím trying to shift from 2nd to 3rd gear Sometimes the transmission comes loose like Iím holding the clutch and it dose suddenly turns back to normal.

So Is it from the clutch or transmission, quick shifter??

And for the record I have the same problems before I took of my old sprockets!!

Any ideas plz ??
