check your clutch cable slack and your oil level. check the condition of the oil as well for weird texture, separation and an off nominal odor.

You know if you are sitting still, you need to either let the clutch out a little before hitting shift lever or rock the bike forward and back to get it to lock into gear. It sounds to me more like you need some professional training from the MSF people before you get yourself hurt on it. Don't become another rider down or a RIP thread. Get some help before you throw a leg over the bike again.

Give the guy a chance to learn.. He is going to be 17 in a few days...

Peruvian..you might want to take the advice of the collective wisdom of the board and look into taking an MSF course to familiarize yourself with the safe operation of a motorcycle...Just a suggestion..

Yes, I think that point was made by Patrick.

I didn't tell him to get off the bike- I said he should get to Motorcycles Unlimited and take the MSF.

I agree with the others.

Have it looked at to make sure there aren't any issues with it. Then keep in mind that shifting gears while stopped may require you to partially engage the clutch to catch the next gear down. This is mentioned in the MSF. Also, do your down shifting while you are slowing down to a stop to avoid this from happening.

In addition, for when the car behind you doesn't want to stop, or wants to run that orange light, when you don't. Being in the correct gear can be a life saver. Also a topic in the MSF BRC...

He may be using the clutch technique I described...let it out a lil and shift until you get it all the way down to 1st. It is a very common thing. But trying to diagnose a real problem over the net is far to difficult. You need a knowledgable person to look at it and see if there truely is an issue or it is just you.
