Most of the time it hangs up so you have to upshift back into 5th then really shove it back down. I've replaced the clutch pack and clutch cable so far. I ordered new shift rod, pawl, spring clip and shift rod spring. They will be here Monday. If these don't fix it then I'm getting rid of it. I've put 1000 miles on it since I bought it. It's been down more than it's been on the road.
Not the norm for this bike. Other faults, but not this one.
