hello all. I have a question. last summer while I was on the highway I noticed that when I was shifting from 4th to 5th gear it seems that either my bike falls out of gear or the clutch is slipping im leaning toward the shifter because in lower gears in town no issues can still cook the tire good. when it comes out of gear or whatever if I pull in the clutch and put it back to 5th it seems ok. any imput from you guys would help me out a ton. Thank You:choppersm

Are you putting it in 5th gear "Gently?" There is a "Phantom neutral" between 4th and 5th... maybe you're hitting that?

You have to put it in 5th fairly firmly or you will hit this "Phantom Neutral".
