Ok, so I'm not expert but I ride fairly aggressively. Mainly trails and hills but some track time here and there...

Anyway, on several occasions now I've been climbing some tight rocky/technical stuff and had to try to find 1st gear and missed. Have any of you had this problem? I also find it a bit touchy finding neutral (except when shooting for 1st and hitting neutral by mistake :) )

So, is ther something I can do? Is this mechanical or my own problem to learn how to shift correctly?

Please let me know what you think,

Had this happen a few times , keep clean oil. I blame this problem on a poor shift cam design.
