When I am breaking (from 50 MPH to 0 MPH ) and downshifting fast my bike sometimes has a hard time getting into first. Every once in a while there seems to be a grinding sound. I only have 1000 miles on the bike. Is this something that I need to have checked out?

DO NOT SHIFT INTO 1st GEAR until you slow down to at least 10mph. Watch how smooth it is at that speed.

You need to "blip" your throttle when downshifting so as to match engine speed with bike speed.
