1st to 2nd gear

I am having an issue with my Street 500 and was wondering if anyone else has the same problem.:(

When shifting from 1st into 2nd (sometimes) I hear and feel the click like the bike has gone into gear. When I roll on the throttle the bike ends up being in neutral. Sometimes the green N shows on the speedo sometimes not.

I am an experienced rider so I don't think it is me. I have made a point of really making sure that I am shifting clean and it still happens.

Anyone else?

Oh, and it seems to happen a bit more when the bike is warmed up.

Over the years, I have had several bikes, and was able to catch neutral between 1-2 shifts on most of them... on seldom occasion.
If it happens frequently, I would be concerned, but not, otherwise.
