yzf 426 5th gear probs

i have a yzf 426 with a 5th gear problem it goes into 5th gear but does not accelerate it just grinds away can anyone help?

shift fork bent maybe?? i used to have a problem like that and that was the answer...

I'd say 5th is missing. If not, it's the shifter fork.

try putting the bike into 5th when the engine isnt running and turn the engine over by hand.

as said above, could be shift fork. I had problems with 4th in my 426 - dogs worn and teeth missing!

does your bike have a magnetic drain plug? Check for large bits of metal when you dump the oil.
