1st check your shifter linkage-does the indication coincide with your gear recognition display in instrument cluster? most liley if it is not the linkage the gear recognition swith inside your shift box is defective-usually they get soda or coffee spelled on them and malfution. I would recomend having you car scanned for codes.

Your description of the problem is classic for a bent shift fork. Call a couple dealers and get a base cost for the repairs. It would be best if you take the bike to a dealer and let them look at it to confirm my diagnosis and I think they will. A cost of $750 would not surprise me. The costly thing about changing a shift fork is that the engine comes out of the frame and then gets a complete tear down, both top end and bottom end. Now the fork can be changed out then engine / transmission re-assembly begins. This is not a recommended repair for the novice mechanic. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Its most likely to be the external part of the shift mechanism & therefore it would not need the transmission stripped
It is probably just 1 of the springs on the shift claw that is broken - this explains why it only shifts 1 way
Please mark this as very helpful (if it has been!!)

Your check engine light is on because the computer picked up a problem with the vehicle. Take it to Autozone and they will scan it for free. They will let you know what is wrong and what parts you may need.
