I have over 8k on mine and it does it every so often. Real pain coming to a rolling stop, and then trying to take off.
I experienced a drop on the left side (stall on a hill dead stopped) once around 1k miles I'd say, but it only bent the shift lever on mine into the rod so I couldn't kick it down. Didn't hit the shift rod itself.
I have LSL rearsets though, so I'm chalking it up to not having the linkage adjusted out far enough to have enough throw and just generally being too lazy to fix it on my bike. I don't really remember it doing it with the stock one's much, maybe brandy new but seems to have happened mostly after the LSL's.
Interested to see what they find after digging around in there.
Once or twice I've given it a good kick with the heel of my boot to slam it into 1st.
