Trans problem

I a have an 08 1300 Vstar with 1100 miles on it. Every once in a while
you can drop the trans into low gear & it is still in neutral.
The trans sounds like & feels like it is in gear, but it is not. I had the
bike back to the dealer & the went through the trans. Replaced some
parts got it back & the trans still does this from time to time.

Anyone else have this problem or heard of it.

Warranty techs are telling me it will have to do it every time all the time before they will do anything else to the bike.
I know its not me & the way I ride. I am not new to this.
