Default Popped out of gear

I was crusin down the road yesterday in 6th doing 65 and all of a sudden it popped out of gear. The tranny made some clunking noises but I pulled in the clutch put it in 5th and continued along just fine.

Oil level is good and its only been 2k since change.

Should I be worried?

^That happens with me too.

Just make sure you put it all the way into gear. Mine would happen with fourth if I was going slow around town too.

It's called False Neutral. Happens on all bikes if you don't firmly kick it into the next gear. Makes a horrible sound like your transmission is ripping apart.

No more sissy shifting will solve the problem
