    selecting 1st gear seems tight?

    if selecting 1st gear it can be tight at times and somtimes try to select but jumps out of 1st,does this mean gearbox?clutch?clutch needs bleeding or selector cables or gearstick.anyone no what the prob could be? i adjusted cables and dosnt jump out and seems ok when im driving but my brother was driving and couldnt select 1st.it has a fast road clutch not that it makes any diffrent but thought i would say.

    You could try changing the gearbox oil see if that helps, mine is tricky to get into first but only when cold, changing the oil helped a bit
