Downshift to first

I've read where many of us felt like the downshift from 2nd to 1st was very rough. Several of you said this improved after the first service. Mine did not, still very rough. Any idea what your dealers did that helped this? I have found that shifting into neutral for a second helps but that's not what I want to do when trying to enter a sharp corner hard.

Clutch adjustment seems to be fine, any other ideas on what may have been done on first service to help?
So, basically, let er rip, at least that's what I'm choosing to hear, and what I'll do.
No problem 8, been riding for many years, but on on street bikes for 6. No matter the experience we can all learn something (and should be willing to do so). Just seems that the downshift from 2nd to 1st is MUCH rougher on the stryker than it was on my V-star. Also seems that there is a larger spread between 1st and 2nd which may explain it. Any way, it's fun learning about different bikes and different experiences others have had.
