04 jumping out of gear
2004, 17k miles, twice it has jumped out of 5th into 4th.
has happened twice....under partial load pretty much when i shift into 5th and start to roll the throttle ill hear/feel it drop back to 4th. try to mimic the problem and it just does it whenever it see's fit. tried putting a heavy low speed load on it and it doesnt jump...tried it under partial load at normal speed....acts fine.
hoping it's just me somehow not fully shifting into 5th.... but i fear its more likely worn gears....
i havent heard of this being a known rr problem.. ive had the bike for 3k miles and dont ride it too hard.....cant speak for the previous owner though :/
anyone know how much gears cost?
i seen entire gear assemblys on ebay for around 100-150. ill probably answer my own question and say itd be easier and cheaper to just get the entire assembly than buying new gears and having to press them off then back on. correct me if im wrong on that
