    Over the last few days I have noticed that when I change up to second that the foot peg stays up in the high position (if that makes sense) so when i go to change into 3rd it cant come into to play - so i give it a nudge and it drops back to its resting position - then i can change up into 3rd.

    Any suggestions welcome

    If it is only for second gear then it sounds internal, but definitely oil the moving parts and joints before going further.

    The longest throw on the gear lever is 1st to 2nd. Lube the pivot points and check the up and down adjustment and alignment of the foot lever.
