Yeah, I dunno what the deal was last night. I need to get the clutch switch working again so I can start the bike in gear. That would have saved me some dirty words.
That switch can be dissembled and cleaned, right?

|niterider||This problem can be caused by the clutch not releasing all the way. Check your clutch lever adjustment.|

It's usually a lot harder to down (or up) shift a bike when the motor isn't running. 1st to Neutral or 2nd to neutral should work, but again easier with the bike running.
Sounds like you have something out of whack with your shifter pedal, although there is some slop in he lever.
As far as I know synthetic oil does not work poorly in a wet clutch compared to regular oil.. Many folks here use it without any problems.

Especially after they tried charging me $24 per spark plug for the 900C I had. I don't even spend that for the 4 plugs my 750 needs.

when it happens to me (not often), I either roll forward a foot or so, or release clutch while in neutral, and try again. for me it seems the gears may be aligning just wrong..
also, for me this is more common when hot than cold

|Spockster||Now that you mention it, I think it was gear oil I heard that about.|
