2nd to 3rd clunkyish but not as bad as 1st to 2nd. Yep
3-4-5 smooth as silk(ish) Yep

Downshifting
3rd to 2nd - throttle blip needed On both My R100's no throttle needed
2nd to 1st - low revs, (wince) firm push (slight graunch) (wince again) Small throttle blip helps a lot no graunch

1st-neutral when cold ok Yep

2nd or 1st - neutral when hot & stopped at lites: 2-1-2-1-2 clutch out a bit to test if in neut- stall- rock bike & notch into neutral - start bike again- wait for next change of lites & don't look at rear view mirror. Nope small increase in revs and it should be easy
