Further explanation

Hi all,
Sorry if I have not been clear, the issue is gearing down whilst moving. I have done well over 250000 km's on my various bikes. I have experinced gear selection issues when stationary on my other bikes as well usually through lazy gear selection.

This is has been happening when I have been cruising in 5th and 6th gear for a while.

When I start to come down through the gears, always one at a time. I get 3rd, 2nd and 1st gear, it won't go into gear and feels like it's in neutral. When you do eventually stop it still won't find it. There has been a number of times when I have been shifting down to go around a cnr thinking I am in second only to find it's still in 4th gear causing the motor to labour and chug. This is not a good place to be.

This has only been happening since I got the bike back after a switch that controls the ecu was replaced.

Hopefully this explains my issue slightly better.
