2000 300 exc first gear issue

I am looking at buying a 2000 300 exc and the guy says it has a first gear issue. I have yet to talk to him personally so this is all the info I have right now. I have googled and checked on another forum I am on and no one had heard of this being a common problem or the possible cause. Does anyone know what this might be or if it common. Thanks

not a common problem for the gears to be bad. Could be the shifter is hitting the chain or is loose, under the right side cover there is a shift mechanism that can come loose or wear and this too can cause it.

More details

I got a basket case 98' 300EXC. The issue it had was 3rd gear broke and locked it up. I got an SX tranny off ebay and fixed it. Like above, need more info.
