Hi,
Yesterday I was riding my 2005 sv650s and it fell out of 2nd into neutral when I was accelerating. Is this a rider error or is something wrong with my transmission? It has less than 6000 miles so I would be very surprised if it was the transmission. It’s only been used as a commuting bike and it’s been well maintained.

If it happens just once in a while then likely due to a lazy shift.

If it happens consistently then check to be sure the external shift linkage moves freely and the height of the shift lever is in good position with your foot.

If the linkage has ever been disassembled make sure it's been reassembled so the shift rod meets the shift arms at a 90deg angle.
