Probably a bent shift fork and rounded off shift dogs.

They sell the forks too. You can send them all of the parts. They will inspect the forks and drum and tell you what needs to be replaced. They just did mine. I think it was around 400 for all the work and new parts. Do you have to split the cases to get to the gears?

yes you have to split the cases, and yes it is most likely a bent shift fork and rounded off dogs

Yes, the engine has to come out, the crankcase covers need to come off and then you unbolt and split the cases.

Pull the tank off, disconnect any wires going to the motor, disconnect exhaust can, remove chain, drain oil, coolant, remove radiator, place jack under header pipe, remove upper motor mount bolts, let motor "swing", remove rear mounts. lift bike from motor. Vwalla

If you can pull a car motor in a day then you can pull a bike motor in an hour.
