    I need some advice,
    My sixth gear jumps out at 160 kmh (95 miles).
    Not when accelerating but when gliding along. Also it does not jump out immediately but after a certain time.
    When I drive slower everything is ok. Also the other gears do not cause any problems .
    There is also no strange noises.

    I wonder if I could be a sensor? I'm still learning about these bikes. that is very strange.

    Check your belt tension.

    Morning Uwe

    I had something like this happen on my old Vegas when I tuned up the engine.

    The cause was a loose bolt on the gear Asm Roller Follower pt# 1341402 to check this you will need to remove the primary case.

    How many KM has the bike done now. John hopefully met up in 2021

    Hello John
    I drive nit the phenomenon already the whole year. Italy, rally and many other meetings, when I drive normally or even hard on country roads nothing happens. Only on the highway at higher speedem over 160 kmh jumps out the sixth gear. I have researched that there is a small component behind the cover that wears out. I will order it times and install and measure before. Maybe you can rebuild it from higher quality steel.
    My bike has run a little over 90 thousand.
    Hopefully we can meet in 2022

    sounds like the dogs are bad on the back of 6th gear and it is popping out of gear. I just wouldn't go to 6th gear anymore if I were you. you don't need it anyway. I never used sixth until after 90 mph
