Gear box slippage between 6th and 5th.
Hello again all, been a while since I posted on this forum.
We did a trip from Alberta to BC back in July. I noticed on the way home from that trip that there was something happening to the power of my bike while on the highway going at speed. It would almost be like my rear wheel was spinning out when I gunned the throttle in 6th gear.
Forgot all about this until a couple days ago. I was back on the highway, in 6th gear and I gunned it, felt the same slippage again but I noticed that the gear indication on the tach was displaying 5th. When I stopped gunning it, the indication went back to 6th. Gunned it again, watched the display switch to 5th, released throttle, display read 6th again.
Did this a few times. Hit an off-ramp and downshifted. Tried the same throttle use as before but experienced no problems between 5th/4th and 4th/3rd. Only seems to be a problem while in 6th gear and heavy throttle.
Not a big deal, just wondering if anyone is having a similar experience.
