Edit. If its an A model reference can be found at the bottom of Chapter 8 page 24 of the service manual, or if it's a B model bottom of chapter 9 page 27.
Thanks for the help!

I've taken that off and cleaned/repositioned it and still nothing

Wont shift to 2nd or any gear after!

I have a 02 ZX12 that will only shift down to 1st then back up to neutral but not 2nd or any gear after, that's moving or with the bike off and on in the still position. I've replaced the plates, springs, clutch cable and no luck with it. Does anyone know what's going on with it?
