Upshifting problems

Hi! I have Brutale 989R. At the end of last summer I noticed that upshifting to fifth or sixth gear does not always go smoothly and now it does same thing again. Seems like it does not found right place to turn gear on.
When I shift and release clutch it stays on neutral ~1sec and then gear goes on. It does not do this always.
Couple times gearbox has rattled when upshifting to 5th or 6th even tough I have clutch on - just like it gould not get right gear on.

Any thoughts what could cause this?

Bleed the clutch fluid and change to a different oil in the motor

Hmm, okey. Have to try that. Which oil have you used? Right now I have Castrol Power 1.

Is there anything unusual of bleeding the clutch in MV?

Use a fully synthetic oil ,I use Castrol also but not power 1,In my part of the world it works great.How many miles has the bike done .Bleeding is straight forward,

Try Mobil 1 ,there are many threads on here about oil,just do a search

It's sometimes happening to me on my B-750 between 5th and 6th gear, but only during "normal" shifting.

Possible ... khmmm ... solution.
I usually use "clutchless shifting" and I noticed that never had problem of false neutral in that riding mode.
Try it, maybe You'll love it

Bleeding your clutch will make no difference in your case, oil change might. Try what Miko suggested, and also try dropping your gear lever toe piece. As you go through the gears the lever moves upwards ever so slightly, dropping the lever might give you a slightly better shift position.
Eddy, I got that Optimiser yesterday, thanks mate, will let you know how they go with it.

It's called a clutch slave cylinder.
