Default Second gear question

I have an 06 F4i and I've been noticing that when I go from 1st to 2nd at high revs (this ONLY happens at high revs ie: 6k or higher) it wont go into 2nd, it clicks and clicks and stays in neutral no matter how hard I kick it. And as I drop the revs it STILL wont go into second, I have to slow down, drop to 1 and then move up. I saw a few threads on bad seconds, clunky shifting but my issue seems different? I drained the oil the other day and put in fresh Castrol oil (I know oil type is a beaten to death subject but that's the kind I've always used with no issues in my previous bikes (Yamaha's this is my first Honda), but I'm open to try others if its a "Honda" thing) but I am still having the issue. Again this is only if I want to wind it out, during "regular" shifting this has only happened maybe twice since I got this bike a few months ago. If anyone has any ideas or thoughts I'd love to hear, I'm hoping to hell this isn't a transmission or larger issue....

Thanks all,
