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.

I notice somewhat the same on mine b4 but it did clear up a lil.... one thing i really scratch my head on is when i first had my ride i was able to start it up while in 1 gear and holding the clutch but now i always have to be in N to start it up???? any input on this? is my sh#* busted??
When I first got the bike it would do that every now and then. Haven't noticed it in awhile.
