SOURCE: gear problems
Take it to the dealer to have a quick look at it, it could just be either a bit of running in stickyness or they forgot to check something was tightened up properly before you got your hands on it. Failing that, try an oil additive such as Slick50 in the oil tank, a fuel additive such as Redex in the fuel tank and if the engine's water / liquid cooled (spot the bike expert) stick something like Redline Waterwetter in the coolant tank... and it might feel a bit better (and last longer).

Your bike has a fifth gear. The problem is probably a bent shift fork. Broken engagement dogs could be present but I have never seen that happen in anything other than 1st and second gear. This is approximately an $800 to $1000.00 repair. Personally, I really like only having to shift 4 gears. Don't you?
Below is a partial image of your trannie and also a generic image showing how a slider gear moves left and right when pushed by a shift fork. In this example the gear dogs engage into either 1st gear or 2nd gear depending on which way the fork moves the slider gear. If the fork were bent, the slider may go into second gear but not have enough movement to reach first gear. If the gear dogs were broken off then the gear has no way to engage.
I don't get paid for my answers but I do take pride in them, I just try to help where I can. So if you feel it is right, > > A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

If the shift pedal shaft does not spring back into position a problem with a spring is indicated. Your bike has two springs tied to shifting. The shaft spring and the index wheel spring. Both springs are still available at Babbitt's. Remove the left case cover and both springs are accessible after removing the clutch. A new gasket is also available.
