If the gearbox oil is extremely dirty and gritty this problem can occur. Usually the clutch doesn't want to disengage and the clutch handle is stiff to operate. An oil / filter change followed up 100 miles later with another oil change cleans the dirt and grit from the gearbox. Since you didn't mention a hard clutch handle or that the clutch doesn't want to engage / disengage, I doubt if dirty oil is the problem.

This sounds like bent shift forks. What bothers me is that all gears have the problem. Any chance the teenage delinquent down the block had 5 minutes alone with the bike? Normally, only 1st and 2nd have the problem. They share a common fork. This is major surgery for the bike. Try the double oil change anyway. It is low cost and can't hurt anything.

This bike is well known for cam chain rattle, but it has an automatic tensioner so there are no adjustments. If the bike runs well just ride it. I have a friend that had his cam chain, tensioner and guides, and in less than a couple years it was making the same sounds. If the bike run rough then it is a possibility the chain has stretched and unless you are confident with timing issues take it to a pro.

The fuel filter is located on the petcock valve that sticks up into the tank. Make sure it is well sealed after repair.

Start with the simple things first. The thermostat is in the thermostat case under the right handlebar, check that the fan works (hot jump it), and check the thermal switch, which is on the left front of the radiator.

The fuel pumps were eliminated on the later models because of this problem. You can discard the fuel pump altogether and gravity feed the carburetors.

The alternator (stator) should pull right off unless the key is still in the shaft. Push the stator back on and feel for a raised portion on the shaft. If you need to you can rotate the shaft by hand to visually inspect.

Here is a link to a quality system that sounds great. Do not forget to rejet the bike as well. I use jet kits from dynojet.

To change your oil you will need 4 quarts of oil, a filter, and a new aluminum drain plug washer. You can reuse the old drain plug washer if it has not been squished out of shape. Your motorcycle comes from Honda usually with 10w-40 mineral base motorcycle oil. You can use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Car oils use different additives and may cause scoring in certain types of cam bearings. Do not use any oil that says " Energy Conserving " on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you choose Synthetic oils, they will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. Pour in three quarts of oil and add enough from the fourth quart to reach the high mark on the dip stick or inspection window. Make sure the motorcycle is upright or on the center stand when checking the level . You will probably need 3.1 to 3.4 quarts to hit the high mark. Run the motor for a minute or two to fill the oil filter compartment with oil. Now recheck the oil level and top up as needed. If you want to try an inexpensive full synthetic oil that is JASO MA rated 15w-40 Shell Rotella T Synthetic fits the bill at about $22 per gallon.
