    New question here. 2003 Vt2

    I had a question for you tech guys. My bike likes to change gears on the down hill section on trails, it does it more on washboard sections of trails. This is a pain for me because I am not coasting threw these sections of the trail, I am trying to pedal threw them. After I move on to something smooth the gears go back to normal. My bike is stock. Any coments or advise will help. thanks

    Probably too short of a rear shift housing and most likely the cable also. Check the cable were it goes from the frame to the swing arm- it should make a "S" bend.

    Agree on the housing/cable call, another thing to watch out is the chain, too short or too long will make the chain move similar to ghost shifting.
