2001 748S, 16k miles. I noticed recently that I ocassionally hit a false neutral shifting into 4 gear (or maybe 5th). This never happened in my previous 10k miles. The clutch is worn and definately needs replacing. Does this indicate a developing problem with my gearbox? thanks.

Rule out the obvious first before going down that road.

Did your shift linkages perhaps not move lately causing a bad shift?
Does it go into neutral OK?
Did you drop the bike lately, especially on the left side (gear selector fork could have moved slightly)

Many possibillities as to why it may be happening, also very hard to tell when it is a problem or when it is a character flaw of the bike. When you start seeing metal in the filter screen you know it is a problem
