Are you sure you're not putting any pressure on the shifter lever?

Maybe not engaging the gear properly to begin with, otherwise it could be bent shift forks.

well thought about that, and rode it and not even touching it. and it only does it the first 15 mins. of riding, like while it warming up.

Engine temp would have nothing to do with it. If it only happens within the first 15 minutes, you're probably not fully shifting into the gear, or are putting pressure on the shifter lever and not noticing it.

If it happens all the time even when you're foot is off the bike, would be worn gear dogs, broken shifter return spring, or something wrong with the shifter forks/drum/shaft. Do you do a lot of wheelies?

well i will have to drive it again just to make sure, i could not notice i do it. and no wheelies here. i will take it out tomorrow for a ride and pay more attention to what i do. hopefully that's it and nothing wrong.

Engine temp may have something to do with it. If the worn component is only just off, the expansion due to the heat may be solving the issue? probably not real likely though!
