Bent selector or damaged gear cog
either a very major diy job and total engine strip
if this is your choice you need to be very confident and patient in what you are doing and get a very good manual read the engine section first before starting so you know what you are in for
after you have read that section then make your choice what you want to do
or take it to a work shop that knows what they are doing

I have a 89' 600 katana gsxr. the trans is stuck in 6th gear. Do I need to split the case to repair?

Unforturntly yes! When you have it apart may as well freashen up the hole motor. If it need seals replace, if it need bearings replace, Messure the cyclinders and pistons and rebore and replace pistons,rings,gaskets ext ext. Being a 89 it would have alot of mile on it and if you rebuild the engine you will have a fresh engine and will have trouble free miles for a long time.

I'm a first time buyer and i'm intersted in buying what i was told is called a susuki katana 650. Ive ridden before but my knowledge as far as brands and models is concerned is slack. Basically the price...

There are some problems with the alternator which charges the battery. Not a huge problem, but added to the other issues I would pass. Rebuild of carbs will help with the acceleration, but it also sounds like it needs a transmission rebuild as well. It shouldn't pop out of gear it either has bad syncros or gears in the transmission. Cost to fix this will be more than the added price of a newer well running bike. Unless of course you can do it yourself.
