Chances are when the OHC was installed it was one tooth off on the timing. You have spark and gas and the bike is a single cylinder so that is what I would check. Slack in the chain tensioner is what usually creates the problem. All slack should be at the back side of the cylinder.

Have a kawasaki 250f with a bent front fork, what other years or brands will fit.

Depending how badly they are bent, it may be straightened. By using a press it is possible to straighten the forks if they are not too badly bent. I have done this in the past... It's not easy!

The worn shift fork is the problem. Normally a shift fork will never show any wear. When a fork gets bent is when wear begins to show. If a good shift fork is set side by side with a bent fork it is very hard to see any difference. The bend is so slight that it is usually impossible to discern. Put in a new fork and the shifting problem is history.

Now would be a good time to install new crank bearings and new crank seals as well.

My kx125 04 model will not let me go into 3rd 4th and 5th gear would like to know what the problem is please

You probably have a bent shift fork or two > very common and expensive. The only other possibility is the shift linkage behind the clutch is messed up in some way > cheap but seldom ever happens.
If it is the forks, then the entire engine comes out of the frame and gets completely torn down. The top end comes off, the case covers come off, the clutch, shift shaft, kick starter, flywheel and electrics all come off. Then the case is split to gain access to the gears and shift drum. The gears and shift drum now get removed and now the forks can be replaced. A few special tools are needed. Sorry for having to give you the bad news.
