Welcome to the forums. It sounds like you may have a problem inside the transmission. Usually the problem is something to do with the linkage, but in this situation, it sounds like it's something in the actual transmission itself. You could try to pull the side covers off and check the linkage, but I'm guessing the case will have to be split to find the problem.

I would start by removing the left side cover and removing the shifter shaft and linkage and trying to turn the shift drum and see if it will lock into every gear. If it doesn't, the problem is likely in the transmission itself. NOTE: If you do happen to find the problem in the linkage on the left side, remember that the right side cover will have to come off after you put the left side cover back on, to time the clutch lever. Once you pull the shifter shaft out of the left side, the clutch lever will come off on the right side and has to be realigned or timed.
