    hey guys I'm in need of your wisdom. my 2010 990 R which had a 45K service done on it about 300Km ago has been giving me a weird problem it doesn't shift down from 3rd to 2nd or doesn't shift up from 2nd to 3rd. it seems to be that this happens mostly when the bike is hot and after i ride it on the highway. any ideas what this might be?

    The pins on that star shaped thing on the drawing may be coming loose, seen that before.

    Also the star shaped thing is held in place with an allen screw, this can come loose but its normally after a rebuild when it's not been loctited.

    Yeah, looks like the pin on the star shaped thing is loose.
