Shifting Gears Question/Issue

So I noticed that when I change gears from 1st to 2nd, that when I pull in the clutch and start to lift up the gear, it seems like it is "rubbing" against something. Like it sounds kind of clunky and not very smooth when it goes into 2nd.

The same goes if I downshift from 3rd to 2nd. But it seems more so when I upshift. 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th gear all go in smooth like butter.

Has anybody had this issue and if so what could be the problem. Is it something serious or should I just ignore it?

what year is your bike?
something bout the Fz's my Fz6 does the same thing i was told by several people its normal.
when i first got it i was freaking out. its just that the Fz's have such a small clutch engagement zone and something else blah blah dont know exact details.
Wouldn't worry to much bout it just change your tranny oil and work on that clutch control hope it helps
