Sticky down shifting

just an fyi to potential v-rod purchasers...
I had sticky, and difficult downshifting and a really tricky neutral when I got my bike. However, it only had 7 miles on it and the dealer said give it 250 miles. After a couple of days of riding, its broken in nicely. So don't be alarmed if you try a new bike and get this behavior.

Occasionally, I have a hard time going into first, from neutral. I have to let the clutch out some and really "kick" the shifter to go into first. 1300 miles and I'm running HD Syn3. This only happens sometimes, any suggestions??
