    Just got home from a 4000k poker run and my gear indicator started showing one gear hugh some times. Very intermittent but will flash 6 th gear or sometimes 5th when in 4th. Before I start looking for the issue I thought someone may have seen this before. Think ing maybe the xtre is sending crook signals.

    If it's a 109 , (cant comment on other models) pull the sensor out and clean it. It can often have crap and ultra small bits of metal around it which gets it confused. Failing that replace it. Cleaning mine was ok for about 1500ks, then started doing weird stuff again. Swapped it out and it never played up Gain

    Thanks mate . I will try cleaning . i thought it may have been the XTRE tossing dodgy signals but it is very intermittent so it probably is a dirty or faulty sensor.
