Dude you know the Si's tranny for the most part ain't that great. Why make another thread stating something we already know. Pointless thread.

threads like this all over this site. gotta search it out. But we all feel your pain, nothing you did wrong, its just the way the tranny is, we all have this issue. Though one thing that I find helps, if you can time it right, when you hit the clutch, tap the gas fast as you can and switch to 3rd.

There have been many posts about this issue. :readtherules:

Then don't redline.... You will blow your clutch out if you keep trying to shift into 2nd at redline and all you get is a :vtec: GGGGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!

Look into switching your tranny fluid and if that doesn't work you may want to either consider trying this http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/transmission/203074-diy-2nd-gear-grind-fix-clutch-adjust.html

If that doesn't work then you will need a new 2nd gear set and by this time you should need a new clutch.

No you won't blow your clutch out you will wtfpwn your synchros. If you're gonna give someone a hard time at least give the correct info out.

Replacing your gear sets would be expensive. Multi
thousands expensive, if you were to do the whole thing.

Be easy on the shift and it will go. Don't force it; hold it at the gate with light pressure until it slots in. Gotta give these crappy synchros some time to mesh with the gears.

Pointless thread but to asnwer your question, I've had my tranny worked on twice by honda fixing multiple sets of gears. Each time it cost honda $3k.

I drive 09 SI FG2. Never had this issue. Only time I would go right to redline is 3rd gear and above. 1st and 2nd, grind it once in 2nd redline, haven't done it since, I will bring it very close to redline, but not push it right there if you know what I mean.

I got an 07 FA5 and i use to have this issue but then i figured out if you push the clutch in all the way and gently guide it into 2nd it will go everytime, you just gotta figure out what works for your car. And o yea, your redline is 8200.:vtec:
