Twice now, tranny not wanting to go 1st at dead stop

Ok, so for whatever reason, my bike died at an intersection. I know my clutch switch isn't working right, so I can't start it with the clutch pulled in. As I was sitting there trying to get the bike in neutral, it took me several hard stomps to get it to 1st than back to neutral. I don't know what's causing this, but it is becoming irritating. It's like the gears aren't meshing together. I hope the syncro's aren't trying to fail. The bike did pop out of 2nd back to neutral as I was accelerating recently.

As for the clutch switch, I think a quick tear down and clean will fix it. The plunger is slow to pop out.

Any ideas about the tranny?

I only understand what I don't understand.
