I too have noticed that the shifting occasionally 'hangs-up" when downshifting as you come to a stop. The first time it happened, I thought perhaps I did not pick my foot up enough between shifts so I paid more attention. It happened a few days later. I simply let the clutch out part way - into the friction zone - and started to downshift once again.
This happened when my bike was new with less than 1000 miles on it. I have not had it happen since 1500 miles. Might be part of the break-in period.
