2009 ZX6R (stock) gear indicator malfunction.

Mine gear indicator started to display random gears. It will jump to 5th and 6th gears and then back down to 4th gear (happen on 4th gear). The transmission shifts perfectly and never popped out of gear. I think this started to happen when I ran over a speed bump this morning leaving school. Any ideas how to correct this issue, its really bothering me.

I have no idea where the gear indicator gets it's signal from. Perhaps a faulty connection, loose sensor, sensor is dirty, or damaged sensor.

Get a service manual and look at the wiring schematics. How many miles on the bike? Has the bike been wrecked before?

About 5,500 miles on the bike. I drop it once awhile back (4 months ago). I'll take a look at the bike later today. Hopefully, it's nothing major. Anyways, thanks.

That's what im thinking, but im pretty sure they put the sensor in the case so one might have to open the transmission if the sensor came loose or something.

There's a sensor the runs off of your shift drum.
It, or the wires coming from it may have been damaged.
