Remove the right side engine cover and clutch assembly and look at the gear sift index mechanism. The problem is in there someplace. Lateral play in the shaft up to 1mm or so is normal.

Also on the left side of the motor, on the shift shaft there is a circlip. If it comes out of the groove, the shaft can mofe to the right and the pin in the shift mechansm becomes disengaged...So, check the circlip before opening it up.
