Problem getting into neutral

you cant top it up, the clutch sits in the same oil as the engine, so i would check your level, and top up if necessary, otherwise, undo the front sprocket cover and give everything a clean, theres been posts on here about SV's having problems with gear change linkages due to road salt and other grime, plus you get a build up of muck from the sprocket with the chain oil etc...

From my experience most bikes get that issue quickly, when used. I spray ACF50 on all mechanical components (well on electronics too, almost everywhere, but that's not your question). It really helps a lot! All gears shift much smoother and neutral pops in nicely again. :up:

When someone tells you "lubricate it" it will help too. However i noticed that (the expensive, yes) ACF50 does a much better job than any lubricant i've had (it's more than just a lubricant). Actually i've just bought a litre bottle with atomizer - so much i love it!

You may want to give it a try.
