Higher RPM shift into second (usually going onto the freeway) and shift into neutral instead of second... Ive done this half a dozen times over the past year... Is there anything I can do to shorten the 1st-2nd gear shift?

one thing put a lil pressure under the shifter like pre loading it almost, give it a firm kick should slide right in, another thing is the type of foot gear, air max look good but gives no support to the big toe

Try riding with NO second gear. I had a 96 YZF with a messed up tranny. I had to drive around with no second gear for an entire summer. :(

I pretty much lost 2nd gear a while back on my Yamaha XT600 enduro. I changed out the clutch, yet the damn thing would not only have trouble going into 2nd, but it would pop out of gear even at high RPM, dangerous. I was told by many, "should have bought a Honda!" LOL I also owned an identical bike pretty much, yet it was a Honda XL600, thing never had issues with the gears like the Yami. 2nd gear sometimes needs a little extra umph, that's normal. If she starts slippin out of gear, then there are issues.
