Now, when you say from 1st to N, do you mean after you have come to a stop or while you're upshifiting?
From my ownership, this issue is "common". I'll roll into a parking spot backwards and I have to roll forward or backwards to get the shifter in it's "gate" before going to N.
There really isn't a fix. It is just more of a quirk that comes with the bike.
This also happens when going from N to 1st on occasion, but its rare, because I stay in 1st at lights unless its taking too long.
