My 1996 XR650L is Hard to shift into neutral while running. When I shut it down it goes right in. Any ideas out there on why? Thanks I am new to this bike. But I love it!

if it is a new bike, make sure the clutch cable is actuating the clutch all the way. a quick adjustment might be necessary. if that fails, you might need a new clutch.
