Finding neutral

Hi, out on the bike today couldn't find neutral as easy as I could last time I was out on it, also, the quick shift failed to down shift and up shift on a couple f occasions. Ma none else experience this, anything that cane be adjusted?

Make your shift rod two full turns longer.

Bleed the clutch.

If you're stationary when finding neutral, slightly roll the bike forward to rearward.

I had the same issue when shifting up. What I found is that when I shifted up under hard acceleration I was not allowing the shifter to return to it original position after I shifted. This bike pulls so hard it really felt like my body was being left behind. I corrected this with a technique change I brought my upper body down closer to tank and the biggest change I made is with my shifting. Now I shift with the tip of My boot and then I shift up and outward.... Try this.

I Ride: 15 Pani R ( I weep a little sometimes )
On both my Pani's the clutch was hard to get to neutral when new. As the clutch settled in from new it got real easy. When the clutch is really worn in then it will be even less grabby and eventually slip towards end of life. It is when it is new that it is grabby and makes for hard to get to neutral unless bike is shut down. Your experience may vary, and I am not a bike engineer or technician, just sharing my experience.

Also bleed the clutch.

I have found it easier sometimes to knock it down into neutral from second with a gentle tap, rather than trying to pull up from first in big old clunky boots

Would the clutch need bleeding so soon? I've not even had the 600 mile service yet. How easy is it to adjust the shift rod I tried this before but couldn't get the locking nut lose, I'm assuming I secure the top end and losen the locking night then just turn the lower rod, am I correct ?

Thnx all
