here you go

apparently in or out of "Honda warranty" its a known fault that Honda are WELL aware of. Its completely at the dealer mechanics discretion as they will take it out and test it themselves.

if Honda Don't accept its the Fault then I've heard quotes upwards of £900 to fix the Gear syncro.

Here's the bulletin for you ,

From what i can see from your description it is not that bad if you are saying "i might" and "sometimes". I suggest changing gearbox oil for Red Line MTL - in my case it helps a lot. Didn't solve problem completelly as on cold start it is still bit of a b**ch but it reduce the problem and it's not so annoying. Also quality of gear change when warm up improves a lot. On top of that fit a heavier gear knob and it will be alright.
