I've ridden many bikes over the years and most can be difficult to find neutral when stopped with the clutch disengaged. It's because the neutral detent is shallower than first and second. The slightest drag from the clutch holds the gears tight enough making the force to shift out of gear high enough that it skips over neutral. It's designed so you don't accidentally find neutral. My tactic is to shift to neutral while still rolling. You can find it every time.
