a) Check gear oil level/condition. b) or you have a worn synchronizer. Verify that your clutch linkage is adjusted, if this is a cable linkage vehicle. Hydraulic units are not suppose to be adjustable. Your difficulty with getting the vehicle into first gear could be a result of the throw-out fork not fully releasing the clutch disk; hence the above suggestion to verify that the clutch mechanism is adjusted properly for full travel of the throw-out fork.
