2008 RMZ450 problems shifting from 1st to second

Just started happening a couple rides ago, and wondering if I should order new shifting detent, or shifting forks, but it's gotta get fixed.

Shifts to first perfect, and then when I give it a good pull up it goes into N and not 2nd. It take quite a few pulls before it goes into second then the next few gears are just fine. Down shifting I have no issues, but its killing me in the corners, almost to a dead stop at times, and 2nd is pretty tall for a 90 degree'r, well with my skill level anyway.

I am hoping to order all the parts before cracking them open so I can do it in an afternoon and not have to wait weeks while my bike is un ridable for weeks.

Any thoughts?
