Gsxr 750 k1 2nd gear hard acceleration issue

Under hard acceleration in 2 nd gear feels like it revs for .2 sec or so but no power and after the power kicks in ( feels like missing 1 tooth of the sprocket)... took it my garage they think it is gearbox issue. But before I spend a fortune on gearbox, wanted to as if any of you had similar problem??
Thanks for your help in advance

Could it be the the clutch slipping possibly? Or it's not like that?
Only 2nd gear?

^ I'll go with a slipping clutch absent any bad noises and clunks when it does this.

if it feels like it's jumping a tooth, check the chain tension. It might be too loose. You should have about 1" to 1.5" of play if you push the chain up and down.
Also check to make sure the chain is aligned properly.
