The transmission does not have what are called synchronizers. These are what let you shift a car or pick up transmission without grinding. The stoppage you are experiencing is caused by the teeth on the sliders being lined up across from each other and is the nature of the thing. By trial and error you will discover how long after you shove the clutch to pull on the shifter. Ideally you would pull it in gear just before the transmission stops. A small mount of grinding won't hurt a thing. I know people who have just slammed them in gear for years with no apparent ill effects (but I donít). When you need to feather the clutch to get it in gear let off of the shifter first, that will help the grinding once you get used to when to pull it in gear.
