    During a hard ride my bike started having trouble down shifting. I would have to hit the shifter twice or more........up shifts were no problem. I rode it around a bit for the rest of the day and the problem slowly became worse. by the evening, I couldn't get it to shift down at all. it was stuck in 4th gear and somehow I limped it home.

    I checked the shift linkage, no problem there.....checked out similar problems on zx6 forums and determined the shift forks or shift drum or engagement dogs were worn.

    After tearing the bike apart and splitting the case, I can't find any wear on any above mentioned parts.......If anyone has a suggestion I'm all ears. Totally frustrated, confused and sick of working on the damn thing.
