1979 Yamaha XS1100SF transmission problem,

1979 Yamaha 1100XS SF transmission problem, popping out of seconds gear,,,I have heard of the dremel fix, and also heard it is temporary. Also i believe those gears are machined for engagement at the end of the dogs. This is a notorius eleven hundred problem I am aware but what really happens and how to avoid a repeat? I noticed slight play on 2nd gear to main shaft I am having new bushing made and machined to fit.
