Won't shift any higher than 2nd gear.

Just recently ran into a problem with my 03' GSXR600. I rode today fine to work, but on the way home when I tried to shift into second it was a little hesitant. Then as I tried to shift to 3rd gear it felt as if the gear pedal was locked and I could not shift any higher. I am stumped, do any of you guys have an idea of what it could be?

A little more detail: The bike has 2777 original miles on it currently. The previous owner lowsided the bike going 40-50mph about 6 months ago. The chain is not loose.

Exact symptom - Bike goes into neutral perfectly as well as 1st gear, as you ride the bike will go into 2nd gear but takes more than a little effort. After 2nd gear it will not shift any higher no matter how much upforce you put on the gear shifter. Ran perfectly this morning/afternoon, this evening is when it started acting up.

Pull your clutch cover and check the bolt holding your shift star in place. Those year GSXRs were notorious for them coming loose.
If it's loose, put some GREEN loc tite on it and torque it to spec.

thats what your left foot goes on. shifts the gears its actually called a "gearshift pedal" in most microshift, so technically its not that far off from the proper word.
