Out riding the mountains today & a strange thing happened. I was in 5th gear accelerating up a hill and the bike ( 2010 ) suddenly jumps into a false neutral and the into 4th gear. It happened so fast I didn't realize I was in 4th until I looked at the tach. I shifted into 5th and continued for the rest of the day with no further problems. And no, I didn't hit the shift lever by accident. The bike has appox 2500 miles. I have never really liked the way it shifts. When downshifting it sometimes kind of grinds. Upshifts are not bad. When I test drove a 2005 its shifting was overall much smoother than this one ( it had 4000 miles ). I was hoping mine would smooth out with time. Recomendations guys.
