The answer is:

7134

Reason

The months are arranged in alphabetical order. The first part of the number tells us the month(April=4, August=8, Dec=12 etc..). The second part of the number tells us the number of days in that month, reversed!(April 03 days, August 13 days, Dec 13 days etc..). The last part of the number tells us how many letters the month have(April - 5 letters, August - 6 letters, Dec - 8 letters). The 6th term of this sequence is July. Using the same reasoning we get 7134
