SV shifter sticking in place

friend bought a Sv about a week ago without letting me test ride it first ( he doesnt know a thing about bikes). Well the bike was dropped by the previous owner on the left side. he destroyed the shift lever and replaced it with an after market one along with repairing cosmetic damage. Well now the thing sticks in gear really bad. The only was to get it out of gear is to ride it and at about 8mph it will slip into neutral. Everything appears to be straight, oil has been changed recently.

Whats the first thing i should check? Previous owner said it shifted like brand new before the low speed spill. Should i take the case cover off and inspect all inside of there?

oh its a 01 SV650.

if its an emgo shifter take it back off and you have to shave the bushing inside the shifter, it sticks out a little on bothe sides and it causes it to stick

if its the S model then you need to have 2.9L of oil. not the 2.3L indicated on the case. this sometimes causes what you are describing.

+1, or the linkage at the shift star may be fubar.
Check the shifter first though.
