Ok, when im using my bike at night with my lights on (the 3 regular lights)
when im shifting gears it goes fine from 1 to 5 but its impossible to downshift, so when i immobilise the bike i still cant downshift but when i close the lights, it then downshift perfectly. It is not a coincidence, it does that every time. Could the energy taken from the lighting system doesnt
leave enough "juice" for the shifting motor ??? but only the downshift part ????? Notice that i never have this prob. in the day time with no lights on. Anyone ever heard of this situation ???
Thank you

You will have to check the charging system .. Bike should put out 14.7-15.5 volts at 5000 rpm...
