Could a faulty carb cause a newly rebuilt tranny to downshift from third to second then shift into third again randomly at even speeds of about 50 mph?

If the transmission has a vacuum modulator you may have connected the wrong vacuum line from the carb. Otherwise, check the downshift linkage connected to the accellerator. After you've done those things, if it's still having problems, ask again. or vaccume leak

Depends on the bike and it's gearing. At around 30mph, i will downshift from 4th to 3rd for engine braking. At around 18mph, I will downshift from 3rd to second for engine braking. I will not engine brake into first gear.

Downshift. Allowing or operating the clutch to make it slip causes friction which causes heat which causes premature wear to clutch parts which causes unnecessary repair bills.

The transmission computer defaults to second gear when it detects a malfunction and sets a code.

The first rebuild was due to a cannon shot inside the theater, igniting the thatched roof, burning it down. The second was rebuilt when some people closed it and all theaters in London down. It was then destroyed and turned into tenements. It was rebuilt in the 1990's.

There is generally 4 serviceable parts. First is filter and fluid change, second is linkage, 3rd is vacuum modulator, 4th is downshift cable. What are the symptoms?

i am assuming you mean the switch for changing from one tank to the second tank if this is correct,either the switch on dash is faulty or the actual changeover valve on chassis rail is faulty

Word 1) 'math' has one vowel letter among a total of 4 letters. The probability of randomly selecting the vowel letter 'a' is P(v) = 1/4. Word 2) 'jokes' has two vowel letters among a total of 5 letters. The probability of randomly selecting a vowel letter is P(v) = 2/5. The probability of randomly selecting a vowel letter from the first word and a vowel letter from the second word is: P(v1,v2) = 1/4 (2/5) = 2/20 = 1/10 = 0.10 = 10.0%

It MAY be related to the "downshift" linkage. Some vehicles use a linkage between the throttle body/carburater and the transmission. If the downshift linkage is adjusted wrong you could have the problem you are describing. On the other hand, if it's a computer controlled transmission, it could just be a sensor. But yes, it could also be a transmission problem.Have the transmission serviced. Complete fluid change and new filter. If that doesn't help, then take it to a professional.AnswerAnswer to my own question. I changed fluids, there were large broken pieces of metal in the pan. Took it to a shop, and there is no second gear, it was shifting from first to third. Victoria Transmission would rebuild one from old parts ($800) or a new rebuilt ($1300) and $500 to install or $100 from PicknPull and take a chance.

This often happens when the transmission fluid is low or needs replacing. As a temporary fix until you can do something about the fluid: If you stop (like at a traffic light), turn the key to off, wait a second or two and then restart it will shift again
