Shifter won't return to middle

Could really use some help with this. I have an 02 Vrod. When the bike heats up the shifter doesn't return to the middle position while changing gears. Any ideas? It works fine for awhile....

Have you lubricated your shift rod at the joints? I would think it would do it all the time if this was the case but I would make sure it is lubricated first and see if it makes a difference.

How old is the oil in the bike? Not mileage, how many months since last oil change?

Thanks for the reply...I just replaced the oil this month. I'll try lubricating the joints but it shifts fine and the pedal returns when cool.

Are we talking about the shifter or the clutch?
