CBR125 shifting...

My wife bought a CBR125 and has put about 50 miles on it. A small problem she is having with it is occasionally it will not shift from N to 1st at a stop. It takes repeated efforts to get it to shift. She has also had it not be able to shift from 1st to 2nd, but that has only happened once.

Anyone with this bike have this issue during the first bit of break in? Oil level is topped up. She is a bit of a light shifter, so muscling it into gear might help too. Anyway, just curious if this is normal and if it will go away as things settle in.

Thanks.

it needs the snot run out of it... don't be gentle... beat on it a bit... and it will loosen up... tell her to ruff it up a little bit..

My buddy had one and he just had to roll it ahead or back a little to get it to pop in.

Thanks. That has been my advice too (roll it back and forth)... I think if she is more confident with her shifts it will help too.

The rough stuff will come, won't be long before she is draggin a knee and pulling away from me!

Thanks guys.

Don't worry guys. If the economy doesn't get any better they'll have to start selling small bikes because most people will not be able afford anything but.

Don't be so easy on the shifter, my 919 did the same when it was new.
