My bike ghost shifts. In researching this, Honda dealers act like they have never heard of such a thing and blame my shifting technique. I've been riding a long time and my shifting technique is fine. I found a former Honda mechanic who was familiar with the problem and he said the best bet is to ride the bike until the transmission fails, then swap out the engine/transmission and keep riding. I will note, however, that my bike is ghost shifting less these days (several rides without it happening at all).

I have just read about this, have not had this problem nor dealt with this shop.
100% right on the money especially the item related to oil which is never a problem related to any failure. I may disagree regarding footwear however as I have never had a problem while wearing tennis shoes

Ghost Shifting 2005 -

The final word on the 2005 1800 my wife and I had taken out for a test ride is that the transmission will need to be disassembled for repair. A service tech said it's probably headed for one of the Dallas vehicle auctions.

I had a problem similar to this on my 97se.
I ordered the shift brace for mine and cured the problem. Also had to replace the shifter seal. Thing is when I checked the shaft itself you could wiggle it around. It had lots of play in it. Get the brace if all else fails.

Unfortunately this is an entirely different setup so there is no brace or easy repair. But nice advice for older wings.
