Down shifting to 4th
« on: September 30, 2013, 08:26:33 PM »
Just figured out today how to do this, every time!!!

Pull in clutch, click one down, then one up and it drops into 4th every time!!!
I've gone back to my roots. British 1 lunger, stump puller.

I have not had any trouble going between 4th and 5th on my 2011 G5. Since I am in town most of the time and not on the highway very often I don't get in to 5th every time I ride. But when I have and then have dropped back to 4th its been fine (knock on wood).

Getting into 4 th used to be a bit dicky on my g5 also but once I got passed about 5000 odd km it self healed. It seemed to happen more when I had boots on and my foot was less sensitive to the clunk.now at almost17000 km it only happens very occasionally when the bike is cooling slightly after a highway run.
