2-3 upshift issue?

I recently purchased a 2001 cbr 929rr and went through the basics, tires battery air filter plugs and oil. I have put just over 1k miles on it and it runs like a scalded ape. No slipping or jumping out of gear or anything. The problem I am having is a sort of catching/binding of sorts when trying to shift from second to third gear. It does not happen all the time but occasionally the shift lever will not pull up. If I engage the clutch and release it again it will shift fine. It does not seem to matter if I am getting after it or just riding nice as it has happened to me in both scenarios. Any help on a potential cause of this problem and a possible solution would be greatly appreciated. I am a pretty decent auto mechanic but I know nothing about bike transmissions so any help would be great. Thanks.
