|BK650KLR||First off, since I'm new, let me say hi! Back to business. I have owned 6 different bikes long term, and the ease of hitting neutral on all of them was different. Some you had to catch on a roll, some would go in sitting still, and some if not rolling had to be shut off. You can shift without using the clutch, not good for the bike but not mechanically impossible. The rpm and speed at the time will make it eaiser or harder. However it happened, if It's under warranty take it in and tell them you were riding along and it dropped from second to neutral on its own, other wise they will disreguard it as your fault. Have it documented now in case it fails later. Some places will dispute any warranty work to the death, no matter what.|

This question isn't related but close.
Do most 2nd Gen bikes click pretty loud when going from N to 1st the first time of the day? Doesn't seem as bad later on when it's fully warmed up. It's seems normal to me for the bike. My DR650 and another 750cc bike did it. My DRZ didn't do it at all; it was buttery smooth.

|DSAP||Ok - thanks for the info guys - will take note of your advice|

|Some Mook||It would still be fairly easy to tap the transmission out of second even with the clutch engaged when rolling off of the throttle. If one does not make a firm and positive upshift, it is also possable that the gear has not been fully dogged in, and it'll slip out very easily on decel - some have reported issues of this nature and found that the shift lever has been dragging slightly on the side case cover, which will leave tell-tale scrape marks in the paint on the case cover.|
