I have '16 Rebel and I have an opposite problem. sometimes if I make a complete stop in 2nd gear , there is considerable resistance while I am "going through" neutral to get to 1st. And quite often it does not let me shift into 1st and stays in neutral. Then I would need to either repeat the clutch or rarely often to rock it to pass into 1st - it would be still followed with some resistance and a "clunk" sound...
since I am fresh rider (~350 miles under my pegs) , I am not sure if this is the pattern, but it seems that this is less likely to happen if I ride it in 2nd gear for few moments before a stop, and more likely to happen if I am quickly downshifting from higher gears (or made a full stop in, let's say 3rd gear). does this make any sense?
