When you shift on your motorcycle sometimes the gears get stuck and you have to disengage the clutch alittle for the gear to snap into place usually happens around first gear is this the transmission?

This is normal in a sequential transmission motorcycles use. The transmission needs a source of power to move the gears in place, if you shift more than one or two gears down, you will have to disengage the clutch to continue shifting down. You should plan your stops accordingly and shift down while stopping so that you can shift to first just about when you are rolling to a stop.
