You have a couple of bent shift forks. Major work to replace the forks. Time for the Honda dealer to get involved. Sorry.

SOURCE: suzuki bandit 1200 W reg missing under load,

Sounds like a mix issue and things are working and adjusted going into the cylinder.

Is your exhaust clogged? Is the condensation water draining correctly (your tail pipes are high so water collecting in the exhaust on cold engines will stay in the bottom. It could even build up if you only take short trips and your small drain holes are clogged. I've also heard of a kids sticking things into exhaust pipes before!

Finally, sometimes rust or other causes clogging. Unfortunately, I don't have an easy way for you to check it.

This is actually designed to run at those revs. It\´s basically the best way to maintain reasonable power to wheels at high speeds with an engine that is not powerfull enough to produce the HP needed to maintain that speed or higher speeds with a higher gear ratio.

Gear changing in a hero honda cd deluxe?

The gears work like this. Start in Neutral. One kick down is First Kick up for second then third fourth etc. You need to pull in the clutch (left hand) when you feel the time is right. If your going slow maybe 5000-7000 revs, if your going fast 9000-11000 revs. It's more a feeling that you get after riding for a while. Changing down is pretty much the opposite. Rev matching is something you will never stop learning, so don't worry if you get it wrong. Just take your bike out and learn how it feels.,,,
