There is always going to be a difference between 1-2 and 2-3, 3-4, 4-5 because of the neutral gate. longer throw, since you are essentially moving a position and a half.. practice and careful clutch work. I have no problem with mine, or my W-650...

My 1500 has about 33,000 miles. There is a definite solid effort needed to get from first to second - if I don't really stomp on it I will get neutral. I think the 'neutral finder' puts more of a gap between the gears so over time it gets more pronounced. If I had to guess I would say it is 4 clicks all at once if that makes sense.
On another note I am having a ball riding again and this bike is the coolest thing imo! I'm still going to the garage to check it out.  :)

I've ordered an air filter and I'm going to pull the plugs to see what they look like.

My experience has been; If it sputters or stumbles as it dies = fuel related problems. If it cuts dead off = electrical problems. Just my 2 cents worth. Hope you can get things resolved quickly and frugally. Happy drifting, CDD

My W-650 would do this, now and then. It turned out to be a loose battery connection.  Just a thought

I'll pull the seat and check it out. Strange it doesn't have any other electrical problems and it cranks over every time and both starter and batter seem strong.

It's never too late for joinin' a great bunch of nice and helping people!
Seems like your scoot is just like ma-deuce: a 1999 red and black 800.
But I'm not so sure about it, since that there are no pics of your beauty…  ;)
As for the exhaust, I do agree with you: the OEM one is absolutely too much quiet. And that's why 3 years ago I went for a custom 2-1 with fishtail looking.
Now she's a roaring tiger, and goes even faster then before! 
Take a look here:

Mmmmh, it looks like a bad mixture: check out your carburetor.
I've had the same problem last year, after having put on a full open air filter. This caused the mixture to be too lean, because of the big amount of air coming from said filter.
So I had to turn 3 times counterclockwise the mixture screw of the carburetor. And now she goes like a dream!

you can do what I did with my 800 stock seat that I had before I went to the 1500.  I sent it to an upholstery shop and had them rework it with a gel pad insert and memory foam.  they then put the stock cover back on and sent it back.  total cost was about $170 including shipping.  the seat was way more comfortable than stock.  Planning on doing the same thing with my black oem seat on my 1500.  I already have a modified stock seat in brown that works great on long rides....I got a Saddleline seat cover and re-worked the seat foam myself with a gel pad and memory foam kit.
