While on a recent trip to Vermont my 2002 K1200rs began to not shift properly between 2nd and 3rd gear. I pulled into a Motorsports shop in Rutland and a tech looked at my bike. He told me the gear shift linkage nut was loose where it meets the transmission. He tightened it up for me and I was on my way. The Bike was perfect, but after an hour or so I started having the same problem. It doesn't happen all the time and I never know now when I stop at a light or downshift into 2nd gear wether or not I can get it back to 3rd. usually after on or two lifts on the shifter it usually goes into gear. Once in gear the bike runs perfectly. It happens intermittently. Any suggestions ?
