You may have damage in your transmission causing the problem. But maybe the problem is caused by using the wrong oil. If it happens more when the bike is hot or in stop and go traffic, try using a JASO MA certified full synthetic oil like Amzoil or Mobil1 for motorcycles. Do not use any oil the is Energy Conserving they can shorten the life of your transmission and clutch. If there is no engine damage causing the problem this may solve it for you.

On My 2002 Hyundai Elantra after 5-10 min of driving fast and hard accelaration will downshift the transmission.What can cause that,?Check engine light is not on...


Most modern automatic transmissions have a chip in them that will prevent the car from downshifting, say, into first gear when you're moving at 60 mph. Still, I wouldn't try it. When climbing a hill, only downshift if the AT can't decide which gear to be in and switches back and forth--choose the lower one. When descending use brakes to decelerate. However, once you've braked, do use a low gear to coast in, to prevent you from freely accelerating down the hill.

In manual mode, is the tiptronic supposed to stay in the gear you choose until rev limit is reached? Or will it shift up on its own before the limit is reached?


It will only downshift on its own, it will stay in the selected gear until the RPM is too low and downshifts or until you manually shift to a higher gear.
