My 636 has 2900km on it and I am having minor problems with the shifter. Sometimes at a stop, I will try to push the shifter to first but the gearbox won't go down any further, so then I tap it up gently and it goes into gear instead of neutral. So yesterday I took off with it in the gear that I tapped up to and it was 1st gear.
Its like the bike is sitting in a space below first. I hope I am not confusing anyone with my explanation.
Also, going from 1st to 2nd it sometimes slips at high rpms..
Is this normal with sportbikes...

When getting into gear at the lights it helps if you roll the bike forward a little as you slip into gear. That is, a little roll of the wheels should help a lot as you select first gear.
