Quick Shifter- false neutral when engine braking and fuel sending unit
My 2017 Supersport S has almost 7,000 miles. The quick shifter has been acting up. When engine braking, the transmission will shift from second gear to neutral when braking under light load or coasting. It happened a couple of times when I tracked bike at COTA. It is unsettling, because you all of the sudden lose power and engine braking. The transmission shifts into neutral which affects the steering and geometry of suspension.
I first thought maybe I accidentally tapped the shifter. But it has happened multiple times, and this is without any input from tapping the shifter. It appears to happen only in second gear. It occurs only when engine RPMs are less than 3,000 RPM. I don't recall seeing any engine error messages.
Also, my sending unit is failing. Fuel light continues to flash and gas gauge does not work. This happened multiple times on my 2014 MultriStrada. Had to replace twice under warranty. Hopefully, the new part number will last longer now bike is out of warranty. I think the ethanol gas causes this to occur in US.
Has anyone else experienced these problems?
