Periodically, I have difficulty getting into 2nd. Lands in neutral. I find myself having to kick-up harder than for other gears, especially at higher revs. Anyone else experience this? Thanks.

Same here. Depends on the shoes/boots I have on. Usually no problem with regular riding boots, but I'll occasionally miss 2nd when I have my day shoes on riding into to work.

Same here, once or twice it just stopped in neutral, once dropped back in on it's own. I think it likes to idle.

just pre-load it a lil bit...keep just slight upward pressure on the shifter prior to shifting it...
