This is my first bike with direct drive and maybe thats why this happens. I've noticed a lot that at a stop sign while in neutral, I will try to click it into 1st and it just won't go with out rolling the bike forward or backward a little. Is this normal for the M109r?? Thanks!!

If you down shift to 2nd and release the clutch and slow way down then shift to 1st while barely moving it is smooth as silk. Unless the light is going to be very long I also stay in gera till the car behind me comes to a stop.

I dont think some of you completely understand the question!! This is not happening when im in motion....this is when im stopped at a stop light and in neutral.....then try to click into 1st to take off from a non moving position.

My bike does the same. When I shift from second to neutral then come to a full stop it will not shift into first until I let the clutch lever out and then pull it back in. Then it pops right in to first. Nature of the beast? I don't know.
