    69 Iron Head jumps back into third gear from fourth. Makes for some high rev's. Was wondering if maybe someone else have had this problem? Thanks Semper Fi

    Bent/worn shift fork.Probably time to go through the trans and replace a few items.I'd stop riding it before it grenades and takes out the lower corner of the cases.
