    dropps into neutral

    this is the 3 rd time this happens...getting worried.
    While in 2nd gear, as I'm about to accelerate, the bike shifts into N all by itself. At first I thought that I might have done accidentally. The last time, this has caused me to rev the engine unsuspectically while in a curve.
    What could be the cause of that ???
    thanks

            Only happening in second? Just kep your foot pressing up (or down if your using GP) That should keep it there.

            Until you can properly check it out.

              Dogs or selector forks?

                well. first id check to be SURE you're putting it all the way in gear.. you might not be.. if you do it often, you can angle the shift lever down a tad.. that should naturally fix the problem.

                if it really is engaged fully and its popping out... i would have someone rebuild the trans. its not fun (or cheap) but id rather fix it now, then have to deal with it, and then wear out more parts in the process...
