Just recently I've noticed that its very hard to get the tranny to shift into first gear when downshifting. Sometimes going from the 3rd to 2nd also. Clutch is in all the way. Upshifts are fine and I'm not down shifting under heavy load either. Bike is an 08 with 2800 miles on it. This started when I was out last week and I again noticed it yesterday.

Any thoughts? Clutch shouldn't **** the bed at 2800 miles. I don't feel a slip at all. I do get a harder then normal N to 1st shift when starting out sometimes too.

Freeplay at the lever should be about the thickness of a nickel...have you checked it?

Turned out the bike was asking for an oil change. Been about 1200 miles since the last change. Did the work this morning and its shifting like butter now. Go figure.
