There is an adjustment for how far one way or the other the shift lever will throw the shift drum...there is a cam adjustment ....sometimes it works but if the bike is poping out of gear you need trany work

You might need to adjust the lever height for a more positive shift. I also recommend changing your oil to something better.

False neutrals can be immediately solved by switching to GP shift.

If there is such an adjustment (never seen one in the bikes I've had apart) as this then it'll be inside the clutch cover.

More than likely you're just not shifting up with enough movement. Either that or you've managed to bend the shift fork so it's not shifting all the way into full engagement or you or the previous owner has managed to wear the dogs away to the point that they won't stay engaged.

Try the simple stuff first. Move the lever down a hair so you tend to get a firmer shift into second rather than running out of ankle movement. If it still jumps out of gear then it's shop time for the bike.

If it was false neutral then it would adjustment but popping out of second is most likely shift forks and maybe gears. What make and model of bike? Older Kawasaki's and R6's have been known for this problem.
