I have just bought a 06 cbr 600rr with 12,000 miles on it and its my first street bike. When i went to ride it and it would get through first gear fine and i shited arount 12,000 rpm and went to get on it again in second but it seemed to just rev and not go i let off and and got back on it again and it seemed to go but now like i tought it would. Any tips or advice would be great!!

Has this happened to you more than once?

Neutral is in between 1st and 2nd gears. My guess is that you just mis-shifted.

it could be the clutch slipping at higher revs. but if you just bought the bike it would be hard to figure out without knowing how the bike was ridden before you had it.

from the little that i know about slipping clutches, people always said that if you were really on it at WOT and it just stopped going all the sudden at higher revs then usually its the clutch slipping.. but i would wait for someone with a bit more knowledge to chime in first before you take my word for it

Has it happened more than once? If not, could just be wheelspin :dontknow: At 12k rpm in first gear you were caning it somewhat. It's either that or your clutch is slipping. It would be doing that more than just once though if it was the clutch.

What exactly are you expecting in first, and second gear?
Your description is really vague. If you can get video of whats happening it would be helpful.
We have no way to know if it's your teqnique or the motorcycle.

it can be your clutch or a worn out front sprocket....a buddy of mine owned a older bike the sprockets were so worn down that it would take off ok but when you got on it the bike just wound out...kinda the same way it would if the clutch would slip. Take a look at the front sprocket and make sure there is meat on it.

:+1: Id check the sprokets and probably change the oil to an oil that you know won't cause clutch slipping. On all my used vehicles I change those important fluids asap.
