I adjusted my clutch per the manual and checked and double checked all steps taken, it still will not shift into first gear, clutch has 1/8" to 1/16" free play in lever and clutch pack is releasing when I watch it and depress the clutch handle. However, when I start the engine and it is in neutral it will go into 2nd but it won't go into first, it will grind like !!!!! but, no 1st gear............Any suggestions, Bike has 8000 miles and it was working great when I parked it last!! Changed the primary oil, and followed all adjustments by the numbers???????????

Are you just trying to put in first gear in static or stationary mode? If so move the bike some. Rock it back and forth as you try putting it in first gear.
