Is this something new, or has it always been a problem?

If you don't see anything obvious, you are looking at splitting the cases to figure it out.

Assuming that you didn't drop the engine or anything, there really is no reason why the bike should not still shift normally.

 

Are you getting a full throw on the shift lever?  If you took it off when removing the engine, there is a chance that you didn't get it put back on in the exact correct spot.  You only have to be off a spline or two in order for the shifter to not function properly.
