The transmission "neutral" position is located between 2nd and 1st gear. You say you're also getting a "false neutral" between 3rd and 2nd. Since you say you're finding both, it leads me to suspect that you are not being aggressive enough when shifting the gears. The Sportster has the best shifting transmission of all the Harley motorcycles. Since it does shift so easily, riders sometimes "soft shift" the transmission and wind up missing gearshifts. This is the most likely problem, rider error.
Now, there is the possibility that the clutch is dragging but that usually effects the transmission when upshifting, not so much downshifting. With the engine off and switch on, put the transmission in gear, hold the clutch lever in, press the starter button. If the bike tries to move forward, you need to adjust the clutch.
Common complaint, and has been discussed in lots of forums. Firstly try lowering your gear change, so you get a positive upward movement with your boot.If you deliberatley monitor your 1st to 2nd changes, you can avoid the trauma of over revving etc. Some riders have modified the cam on the Shifter barrel, where the detent sits in the cam valleys, see link below. Could also be a clutch binding problem, again see link .Good luck. http://www.thumperfaq.com/clutch_mods.htm
pull your clutch in on the left handlebar push the shifter lever down and let you clutch out slowly while giveing the bike a lil bit of gas. But if you don't know how to ride i wouldn't be jumping on a kx 250
does not seem like the waterpump. is the clutch set too loose? usually in wire based clutches, if the clutch cable is set to be too loose, or if it is frayed, and needs replacement, the bike will jump and stall. check that.
