Just let me touch it.
Sometimes when I'm riding and I try to shift from 1st to 2nd, or vice versa, and accidentally pop into Neutral, I'll hear and feel this nasty, really loud grinding if I try to complete the shift. The shifter will kinda bounce around a little and often stay in neutral until I give it a really hard kick. I usually kick it with solid force to complete the shift the first time, but the shifter will sometimes react that way regardless. Anyone know why? It's pretty disconcerting, and I'm worried I may be damaging my shifter in some way.
