Check fuel pump is working(remove seat and tank)Although your bike has carbs,they are fed by a fuel pump(under seat and tank)
if there is no fuel getting pumped when you are cranking over,replace fuel pump relay(cheapest option)If still no joy your fuel pump is u/s.although hondas have a seperate small vacume type hose running off the back of the pump,any pump off a kawasaki zx7/zx9 will do the job(they are all made by the same firm)

Only three things would cause the problem. 1) a slightly beny shift fork, 2) a shift index wheel loose, 3) the foot shift lever needs to be adjusted.
The most likely source is the shift lever needing to be lower. Once you are in 5th gear you move your foot to the top iof the pedal in preparation for a downshift. At high speed your entire body is leaning forward FOOT INCLUDED. Chances are that enough pressure is on the pedal to move the slider gear out of position and thus out of 5th gear.
I hope I am right in the solution. Best wishes.

Dont rebuild unless absolutetly necessary or need to rejet. Try some Seafoam first, it might save you hundreds of dollars and a lot of frustration.
read directions on can or just try pouring 1/3 can into two gallons gas and really get on it ...it might clear up any hesitation or stalling if thats whats happening. I got mine at Autozone for $10.( And it fixed the problem after riding for about 15 miles.)

Has the bike been sitting for an extended period of time (a year or more)? If so, then the carburetors need to be disassembled and cleaned. Sometimes, if you are lucky, you can drain the stale fuel out of the float bowls and - with fresh gasoline in the tank, it may run. If it hasn't been sitting, perform a complete tune up (valve adjustment, replace spark plugs, change oil and filter, etc.).
If that doesn't do the trick, then there's a more serious problem. One, or more, of the required three things for combustion are missing: Fuel, compression, and spark (at the right time). Make sure there's spark - and it is happening at the right time. Check compression. You need to see at least 140 psi on every cylinder in order for it to run.
