Thumbs up Oil !!

Might be the type and grade oil in your machine. Might check and see about that first.

Thanks,

Here for 5 years and first post? A belated welcome!

Can you describe a bit more what it is doing? Is it a smooth engine revving up faster than road speed increasing? Or, maybe like a sudden loss of all pull, almost like a brief false neutral?

Without knowing more, I'd guess worn clutch or incorrect oil.

From the very brief description it sounds more like the symptoms of a slipping clutch rather than a transmission problem. If that is the case then Whisper Jet's advice to check the oil type is spot on, for the wrong oil can cause the clutch to slip.

I ride too fast, too far, and too often to ride anything but a Goldwing rolling on a car tire pulling a Tailwind trailer because friends don't let friends vote Democrat.

Or, a failing rubber coupling in the driveshaft ...

Agree, we need a better description of the issue at hand.

Might be the rubber cushion inside the driveshaft is slipping, it's rare but it does happen, if that's what's actually happening you will need to replace the driveshaft.

Bret,
I had just seen where one of the posts mentioned "slipping"
After going back I see he used the term "slipping out of 5th gear."
I am going to delete that post.
It may confuse the OP.
He does need to give w wee bit more info.

I would think if this was the problem, it would slip in all gears.

The heaviest load on the driveshaft is mostly when it's in 5th gear , he could be having an entirely different issue but from the way I read in the first post the rubber cushion inside the driveshaft failing would be my first guess and it's only a guess, I sure ain't no expert.
