This will become more dangerous over time. Go to your dealer. This will be cheaper than an (uninsured) crash when you cannot drive out of trouble because you ignored your broken gearbox. This will invalidate your insurance.

Sorry but it's not loose, you have a bad shifting fork. The first gear fork is going or gone which causes the mis-shifting. You are hearing the clutch basket most likely. With the backlash in the gearbox you can get a noise coming from the clutch hub coming lose from the primary drive gear it is attached to. I also believe there is a chain for the harmonic balancer that needs to be adjusted. It makes a nasty noise and sounds like the engine is almost grinding when it does it. The noise will go away under accelleration.

You have a bent shift fork. This is not a repair job for the amateur. The engine comes out of the frame, turns upside down then the bottom of the gear case gets separated from the top. The entire shift drum, forks and all, gets removed and the bent fork gets replaced. The engine re-assembles in the reverse pattern.
Now what about stressed gears? Any cracked or broken slider gear dogs?
You are going to have at least 75 parts on the work bench. Was the collar on the slider gear on the left side or the right? I am trying to show you why you had best be careful. The shop charges more to fix a box of loose parts than if they fix a gearbox.
Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

Nothing to fear. The shift forks ride on a long spiral grooved drum which has some inertia. If you stomp the gear, sometimes the inertia will carry the shift fork beyond it's intended destination. The various gears are constant mesh with it's mating gear, but are not coupled to it's shaft. The gear, when selected, carries a fixed 'dog' that couples to a sliding 'dog' which is controlled by the appropriate shift fork and is splined to the shaft the gear is riding on. These 'dogs' are like fingers which stick out on the sides of gears and sliders. The reason you have to rock the bike is because the 'dogs' are fairly coarse and don't instantly fit together except when the bike is in motion.

well this is something that is as you said " not normal" i would guess that clutch is smoked. after it warms up do a 3rd gear roll on at about 45 mph. if you drop the hammer and the motor revs and you don't go anywhere stop the ride and R&R your clutch
something else to make sure of is that you clutch fuild is good and has no air in the line
