There are only two things that could cause the problem. Very dirty oil is one and the other is a slightly bent shift fork. Try the oil and filter change first. All you have spent is $3.00 on oil and $8.00 for a filter. If a bent fork is the problem the cost is something equal to the national budget. If it is the fork I suggest you live with it and don't go over 80.

1st and 5th gear jumps out of it's position. Revers gear do's not engage gear from time to time

if this is a manual gearbox then its the indent springs in the selector rod movement inside the gearbox and this will involve removing the gearbox if i have correctly located the fault ,but without the make and model of vehicle i cannot say for certain as it could be the gearchange mechanism movement inside the cars cab and if tis cable then a outer sheaf on a cable could be loose and come out of its crimped holder

I have a 1978 honda goldwing gl1000 motor when i turn on the fog lamp motor trys to die

Sounds like the charging circuit is breaking down causing a strain on the alternator and making the motor struggle.If it picks up on the throttle then this may be the case.
Check all the earth connections as these have a habbit of corroding and causing a high resistance.
