Owned a 999 and did not have any trouble getting the bike in neutral when running and stop at a light. Just got the Cafe Racer with 17 mile's on it. I put about 35 mile's so far. One ride (chilly in Penn.) But when I am at a stop light I CANNOT find neutral. Will not go in, just jumps right up to second or third gear. When I shut the bike off no problem. Goes right into neutral. Hopefully takes time to break in ??
