Default 2003 Honda 450ES Shifting Problem

I have a 2003 Honda 450es. When I first start it in the morning, the "N" on the shift indicator panel is flashing and it will not shift. I can manully shift it and ride it until the engine gets warm, and turn it off and then turn it back on and it will start working. It may work good for a hour or so and start flashing again and will not shift. Does anyone know what my problem could be?

low battery maybe, and when you ride it recharges and then with a reset everything works fine. educated guess
