As Crystal said. Be sure you are pulling it all the way in to gear when you shift. There is a detent that should lock it in as long as you pull it in far and hard enough. You don't even want to think about any other possibilities..

The spring that locks the detent in place might have failed but I would think other gears would act up. The one no one wants to think of is the shift fork is bent in the transmission. Requires engine removal and complete disassembly.

Some who ride the 1800 pull up with there toe preloading the pedal before pulling the clutch in. You would think a nice soft shift would be a good thing but not so. You need to lock it in good and firm. That would be my first thing to try. good luck....

I would try some of the simple maintenence stuff first. Change and bleed clutch fluid. Make sure brass pivot on clutch handle is not worn. How many miles are on this bike?
