Hi and welcome.

The 600RR has been prone to false neutrals between 2nd and 3rd and again 5th and 6th since the 2008 model year. The gearbox was strengthened to make it more durable when using a quickshifter and this was an unwanted consequence. After Honda shifted to a new, lighter oil around 2012 they had a whole load of shifting issues on older sportsbikes, so much these days all dealerships carry a barrel of Castrol 10W-40 "just in case".

What to do? At next oil change ask the dealer to put 10W-40 in it. It won't do miracles but will make the issue more manageable.
Don't worry though, as it's merely an annoyance and doesn't affect reliability.

Thanks for the information surely this should have been a recall on safety grounds as on one occasion I pulled the clutch in just as it jumped into gear scaring the life out of me and some other stuff😮
