Thumbs down 3rd gear

having trouble shifting into 3rd gear. started out 1 or 2 times a week now 2 or 3 times a day. when shifting up into third gear nothing there i have to down shift down into 1st gear then up to 2nd gear then 3rd usually works 1st time but not always sometimes it takes a couple of times of doing this before it goes in to 3rd gear. the clutch seems to be letting out a little higher but has not slipped. 02 K1200lt 44000 miles

Pull the left foot peg plate & check your linkage. Chances are that it is loose and needs grease also.
