i haven't had an issue changing up yet! that's a bit strange...
however the changing down I also find a little agricultural to be honest. it is very rarely an issue, but sometimes if i need to do an emergency brake while in 3rd or 4th (eg a pedestrian jumps out in front), then suddenly have to get going again (pedestrian scared and jumps back out, while cars behind me coming up at speed) and I cant shift down straight to 1st, that pisses me off and is a bit unsafe. there's been a lot of discussion on this and many ppl say this is normal. personally i'm not happy with that, and not really sure how to handle those situations. the only other bike i rode regularly (yamaha xj6) never had that issue.
if you have problems changing up regularly i would have it looked at by my dealer.
