Hello all
I'm back
Been a few years
I've been a 650 classic owner since 07.
She's my son's now and he bobed it out
He's having a problem with it dropping out of 5th back into 4th
When decelerating I little in 5th. At( high )highway speeds. 60 plus
Fyi he has a 4inch Floorbourd extention kit on her
Local stealership can't find a problem it won't do it for them
Anyone ? Have this issue

Looking at the picture I can see it would easy to rest heal or even pants leg onto shifter and knocking it down a year. The wind riding 60 plus would be enough to blow pants pretty good. If dealer can't find anything wrong, have your son tuck his pants leg into boot or sock if wearing shoes and test theory.

On my 650 I had to make sure I shifted hard into 5 th or it would drop back to 4 th going down the ramp. It only did it on hiway. Just make sure he is getting it hard into 5 th never had a problem with it when I insured it was in 5 th

Mine does this too from time to time, usually after a sloppy upshift to fifth.
