Sorry to hear that and hope that does not happen to my bike. But it would be good to know what the shop found when you get your bike back -- something to be aware just in case. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for asking sir.
Fallowing in your your foot steps I too am trying out that clutch thiny, On the latest ride of 40 Miles It worked wonders... Cause I only had one Shifting Issue of 6Th dropping back to 5th. So either the clutch thingy or changing the rpm range I was shifting at from 3000/4000 to 3500/4500 made a good difference, It also made keeping up with traffic less stressful. The extra 500 Rpm made a huge difference or seemed to... Or maybe it was just pulling in the clutch thingy the whole time I was shifting We may never know.!Thanks for the update @Mr Mike we'll just have to see how it pans out. Gotta laugh at the advice they gave you -who knew that motorbikes had a clutch :surprise:
I'm going to do an oil change soonish and increase the break in rev limit that I've been adhering to, so we'll see how that goes. Oh and I'll use that clutch lever thingy before I pull up strongly on the gear lever...
When you say clunky do you mean while you shift you hear and feel positive gear feed back - thats a good sign. Kinda like when you shift to first gear at a stop light you feel and hear it click in.?@Mr Mike Sorry to hear you are still having problems with the bike, just keep on the dealer to resolve it. An update on my earlier post, I've had no more 5th to 6th issues since pushing the revs a little more before shifting - although it still feels a little more "clunky" than all the other shifts.
It's like it doesn't correctly engage (only happens shifting to 6th) and when letting the clutch out it would sometimes "kick back" to 5th or neutral. I'm plenty firm with it and have been riding nearly 30 years.When you say clunky do you mean while you shift you hear and feel positive gear feed back - thats a good sign.
Its the shifting back from 6th hitting a random neutral that I feel is a safety issue... Make sure you take it in and document it with your dealer man, it may come in handy down the road, they will tell you to just keep breaking it in but if your gears lock up one day and you didn't document previous events, they'll give you a lame excuse that your oil was low causing the gears to mesh wrong, and my not be covered by your warranty.It's like it doesn't correctly engage (only happens shifting to 6th) and when letting the clutch out it would sometimes "kick back" to 5th or neutral.

Also I spoke too soon, during a ride today it did exactly that and went to neutral.
I'm at 240 miles
