09 1198S downshifting problems?

I thought it was my imagination at first, but today the shifter locked up and wouldn't move. It only acts up while downshifting, It makes noise like a spun bearing, and it wont down shift thru neutral to first, it stops in neutral. Also It finds a false neutral between 5th and 4th a lot. The bike only has 2400 miles on it.
Anyone else have a similar problem? Ducati should handle this under warranty right?

it will be warranty work for sure. sounds like the gear shift mechanism needs adjustment if this is related to "the stuck-between-gears issue" a few of us have experienced. it is usually a easy fix.

Are you using the OEM rearsets and shifter? Sometimes the shifter gets misaligned when you swap the rearsets with some aftermarket ones. I know my shifter was off a little when I did mine the first time.
