Does it in all gears, and will make the same while sitting idling occasionally. But all the time while in any gear... thanx Eric

Does this happen on level ground or perhaps when pointing up hill while in neutral. Perhaps the dreaded 4th gear problem. Read here: viewtopic.php?t=11366

if at all speeds in all gears sounds like forks or gears slipping/jumping..or something loose in the tranny?? just guessing.

Does it ever slip out of gear under hard acceleration or hard braking..?
