1st gear issue?

I have a 2007 FZ6 that I recently purchased. A few times I had a hell of a time getting the bike from neutral into first. Usually it just gets right in there with a quick but not hard press of the foot. One time I even went so far as hitting the kill switch and starting it back up when I was trying to leave my apartment.

Anyone else have similar issues with a relatively new bike? I got the bike with 3396 miles on it and didn't come across this problem at all at first.

It sounds like the gears aren't lined up.......roll it a little forward or backward and see if that helps.
