If either of these is slightly boogered up or radiused that is your problem.
It does not take much.
Also Yamaha suggests replacing shift forks that are scratched or discolored. If there is any sign of wear on your shift fork I would replace it as well.
I would rather pay a few hundred dollars in parts than have to split my cases twice.
There was also some rumor a while back of 5th gears being improperly heat treated. The engagement dogs must be cherry or it will pop out of fifth.
