Faulty Shifting

Ive been having problems upshifting when accelerating so i pull the engine to split the crankcase thinking its going to be a shift fork. only as im removing the clutch i find that one of the friction plates is split in half. Could this be the cause of my promblem or should i dig deeper into the transmission. Thanks for any advice.

when the clutch basket is released when lever is pulled, it needs to release the friction of the basket(steels to clutches) if that one clutch was catching on the steel plates then the clutch wouldn't be released completely possibly not taking it out of gear to begin with.

Me, personally, since only into the clutches so far(assuming trans in bike) I'd replace them, clean out all possible fragments and retest it.
