My 300 did the same thing after the first few hundred miles. It seemed to loosen after the cables stretched a bit and I had trouble shifting out of second. I checked the manual and there was too much slack (not disengaging all the way). Adjusted back to manual's spec (I think 10mm of freeplay) and it's been good ever since which has been like 400 more miles. Also the neutral-first issue where you say it almost clicks again to go into gear sounds normal to an extent. The times it doesn't want to shift into first, do you notice if you roll the bike an inch or two it clicks right in? Other bikes I've ridden have that too and seems to be normal, but it shouldn't be difficult or anything. That will get better too with a clutch lever adjustment.
