Well I poured 1/3 can of seafoam in the crankcase/gearbox.
Hit the freeway for 50miles and then changed the oil one more time with good ol' yamalube *non synthetic of course*

Wow everything is back to normal, my shifting is flawless. I can shift to any gear at any speed. Even cycle through 1st-6th and back at a complete stop, just like before. *Without having to play with the clutch or move back and forth.
So for anyone that might come across the same problem in the future my procedure includes:

1. Flush synthetic
2. Fill with dino *add seafoam
3. Ride for 50-100miles
4. Change oil once more

Case closed!

Good deal getting it cleared away.
Lotsa good info on this thread too.
Usually the best lessons are the ones you learn yourself the hard way.
