I was riding today and all the sudden when i was coming to a stop, my shifter wouldn't let me go down gears to first easy at all. It felt like something was making it stick or something. If anyone has had this happen or knows what i may be! Please get back to me asap!!! Thanks J Skillz

Definitely in the wrong section.

Were you still moving as you were trying to downshift? Sometimes bikes don't like to downshift unless you are still rolling. Also, if you hold the clutch in for a long time before downshifting, you might run into some trouble. Try downshifting before you come to a complete stop and see if that helps.

This works for me... If I come to a stoplight and the bike doesn't wanna go into 1 gear I:
1)Press the gear shifter down and hold it.
2)slowly let the clutch until the bike clicks into gear.
3)once it clicks into gear.. pull the clutch back in till you are ready to take off.
