Tight gears

Hi there, new to the forum but having some issues with my daughters bike.
It's a 125 semi auto mini pit, but finding the gears are really tight to shift. I've had the bike for a spin and even I struggle to change them.
It's got 4 up gears.
Is there any suggestions or options to slacken them off? I contacted the seller, pit bike spares Ltd, they suggested they were just tight as the bike was bought brand new.
On the verge of buying a heel/toe shifter instead
All help much appreciated

Thanks, not long had a service so the oil is ok plus it's checked before every outing. Will try the clutch adjustment and see if that helps. It does occasionally drive on its own at idle when 1st is selected which would also suggest the clutch needs some adjustment.
Will give that a bash and report back
Thank you
