Down shifting? How? Like slamming through them without the clutch in? I guess I am somewhat lost?

To be a smart ash, yes it will hurt it. Once you have shifted to 6th gear you midas well sell it because its over.

But seriously its fine. Pull the clutch in and push down on the lever or up on it depending on how you have your lever setup.

If you were just downshifting to slow the bike down and used the clutch then you should be fine, the 10's have a pretty damn good slipper clutch just for that very reason, and so the rear doesn't lock up in the process either of course.

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.

I just put a new shift fork in tranny but now its jumping again in 2nd gear, the only thing i done sense the new shift fork was downshifting when racing, looks like i will be pulling the motor again DAMN.
Im going to check the shift drum when i open it up again

Have you put in upgraded shift shafts yet? Its cheap insurance. Its likely they are bent and this is what is causing the issue. I think brock sells them. They will deflect and then come back tp strait whereas the stock ones will deflect and stay. I know you drag your bike alot as well. Have you investing into a good cut trans as well? The shift forks in the 10 are pretty good stock its the shafts that tend to become the issue

I did replace the top shift shaft when i replace the shift fork, when i open it back up im going to get the tranny back cut, and i think im going to replace the shift-drum to be on the safe side.

Usually the dogs get worn out and thats what causes it to jump out of gear. Replace the shift shafts with good ones
