The bike has 700 miles on it and every time I'm coasting to a stop I would downshift from 3rd to 2nd and try to lightly depress the shifter into neutral but when I do it too light it grinds a little, when I do it a tad harder it drops into first. From experience, do you have to break it in more or what? Also when at a stop and trying to get it from first to neutral it would go into second then it would go to neutral. Thanks.
Check your clutch lever play. Mine was too lose coming from the dealer and I could never find neutral. Adjusted closer to spec and neutral was much easier to find. Left it a little loser than spec because the friction zone became to0 small.
