    On my old vfr I used to get a ghost shift between 5th and 6th was like it was in neutral , I changed the oil for Mobil 1 super 2000 and it went hope this helps , ps it’s nothing to worry about

    Probably nothing, happens to me when I try to shift too agressively and don't push the shifting pedal all the way to the stop.
    Make sure you're not running some oil with friction reducers. These are common in cars nowadays, but on a motorbike where the oil is shared with the clutch it'll create unnecessary clutch slippage

    Sounds like you got a false neutral, just need to shift positively. Nothing to worry about.
