From reviews I've read, it seems that quite a few road testers have experienced false neutrals (esp between 5th and 6th). I'm not in the least technically minded, so is this something that can be sorted?
Seriously I have never had a false neutral on ANY bike I have ever ridden in 40 years. Just stab the gear lever good and proper. Don't fanny about with it.My full throttle has more false neutrals than gears!!! I hope it's down to bedding in etc. It's almost always when changing down from 6 to 5th. I reckon 60% of down changes result in a false neutral!! Not great if you're relying on the engine braking!! I've been riding bikes, from all makes, for over twenty years and have never experienced so many false neutrals so I don't believe it's all down to technique. And I don't believe all the journo's who've reported the same issue have poor technique as well. If this doesn't resolve itself soon I may consider rejecting the bike as being unsafe and unfit for purpose!! I'd like to add, I had no such problems on my 100 mile test drive which reinforces my belief these false neutrals aren't all 'technique' related.
