the gear dogs might be a bit worn. but if it only happend once dont worry to much but if keeps happening you might be up for a gear box overhaul and mayby a couple of gears thats the worst case but most proberly it

according to the manual:

worn gear dogs or slots

worn shift drum guide grooves

worn shift fork guide pin

worh shift fork groove in gear

mine used to do this too, but then it stopped. i would shift up and a few seconds later it would downshift, maybe i just didnt lift up hard enough. hasnt dont it in a long time. must be a self healing bike! :thumbsup:

When you say it popped out of 2nd gear after a downshift, do you mean that you shifted down to 2nd and it went to neutral, or that perhaps you were in neutral, shifted to second, and it popped out a moment later?
