    Gear shift gets stuck intermittingly on downshifting, why???

    So my gear shift likes to "hang up" or gets stuck when down shifting, mainly from 2nd to 1st. It's very intermittent. So, as if I'm in 2nd, I try to down shift and it doesn't want to go in 1st, if anything, it wants to go down to neutral, if you try again, doesn't want to go into 1st. Almost like is "lost" or something. I have to try 3 or 4 times before it wants to go into 1st. Also I notice that gear shift has no "spring" when this issue arises. Is the return spring on the shift mechanism failing or something? Something wrong with the shift drum? Clutch issue?

    Like I said, very random it happens. Other than that, the bike shift perfectly every time without issue. I just wish I could re-create the issue on command to pinpoint the exact cause, less tail chasing.

    Has anyone had this issue? How did you fix it?

    I feel like if it was the clutch, I would feel slippage or stickiness, this feels like something in the shifting mech, maybe something worn or a random burr. Really weird, any help would be awesome! Thanks!
