When I had my '01 426, it started doing that. I just made sure I reved it a little before I shifted into gear, no big deal. It just needs new clutch springs to release the transmission all the way.

Do you have the correct freeplay at the clutch lever? When did you last change the oil? Is your engine oil level correct? Has it been a while since you last rode the bike? If it has, the plates may be a lttle sticky. I wouldn't tear it apart just yet, i'd start with the simple stuff first :cry:
