Does anybody have problems with their gearboxs changing down a gear by themselves
It mainly happens just after i've nailed the thing and I keep expecting to have to catch the piston in my teeth as the revs go supersonic.
Has any body experienced this with different types of oil?

I used to dualsport a lot and when accelerating full out on the street and changing gears I had some problems like that. Never on the dirt though. I'm glad I never broke anything because now that I think about it, that's not a good idea with all the traction on the street without any sort of cush-drive on the rear sprocket.

Hey Moto Greg, I just have one thing to say,
"do the stepdown"! :)
