SOURCE: Wire clutch adjustment
You should adjust the cable at the handlebars until it has loads of play and hardly moves the cable when you use the lever, then adjust the same cable at the gearbox end until it comes back into acceptable range with correct amount of play, then tighten locknut.
This is just taking up normal wear in the clutch. Note as guzzi clutches wear you get a clanking vibration noise from them at idle, its normal.

You have nothing to loose. Try the adjustment. Try it a couple of times. Chances of a bent shift fork are 50/50. Drain the oil and remove the right side casing, Look at the shift mechanism. Is anything loose or a spring missing? Remove the shift shaft. Is the shaft bent?
Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: Wire clutch adjustment
Pulling the lever releases the clutch. Disengageing it so you don't go. Ok, in order to engage the clutch fully, you release the lever and you must have at leas 1/4 inch free play.
If it is not going in gear easily, you probably have too much free play and you are not fully disengageing.. There is the possibility of an internal adjust ment Try the above and let me know how or if that works. Clutch lever pulled by closing your fist releases the clutch for shifting.

If the previous solution doesn't fix it, beg, borrow or steal (maybe even BUY) a service manual and run thru the clutch adjustment BY THE BOOK.. I also would suggest removing the clutch cable and checking for binding, fraying, kinks, etc. If the problems still persist, total disassembly and inspection of the clutch will have to be done.
