sounds like the gear selector plate plunger is worn or needs a new spring. on most engines a hollow screw @ 3/4" is accessible from under gear box, take it out and stretch the spring and retry to eliminate possibility.

only two things going on here, first the clutch is out of adjustment, no enough free play, the next is the clutch plates and springs need replacing.

Do you "kick shift" a lot? (shift at high rpm without the clutch) or did the gear box run low on oil at any point that you know of? If so the syncros in the gear box may be worn. Probably not a do it yourself fix, unless you are familiar with this.
Good luck. Please rate, thanks.

SOURCE: bike keeps jumping out of gear
Either your gear selector adjustment needs to be re-set (right hand side of motor inside the clutch cover, there is a hook and claw mechinism that can be fine-tuned) or the gear selector drum stopper is badly worn and will need replacing (experts only, as this requires a total engine strip down).

More than likely the shifter pawl has broken. Breaking in 5th gear is kind of unusual however, they usually break between first and second.
You'll have to remove the outer primary cover to look at the shifter pawl. It's partially covered by the clutch assembly.
