Long shot I know...but posting for a friend. He had a bit of a lowside yesterday on a gravel road at speed. Left side. No real damage to himself fortunately.

Bad part is it is very difficult, or near impossible to shift out of 5/6 down to 3/4. Looking at the fiche appears there are 3 different splines so he's thinking he bent the fork for 3/4 being in 4th at the time.

I've NEVER heard of that on these bikes and am a bit disappointed if a fall on a gravel road can do that much damage, but don't see what else it could be.

Wondering if anyone has heard of similar?

Bike is a 2012 R with 2k miles.....
