Bent shift fork?

Recommended Posts

Here's the story. I was doing a compression test and on the first kick the bike was accidentally in first gear. I noticed this and put the bike in neutral. After I was don't with the test I put it back together and start it up. It started fine and shifted fine at first. After maybe 20 seconds I was unable to shift. Shift lever was completely stuck. I got the bike on the stand and rocking it back and forth I was able to get the bike to move the shift lever. The lever now moves but won't engage into gears properly. If you try to shift it gets stuck in a position then snaps back almost like it getting hit.

I've been reading online about people with similar problems and it's apparently a shift shaft or shift fork issue. Has anyone else had to deal with this before?

Thanks for reading
