my 06 wr 450 motard slips in 5th gear, it feels like the clutch is shot but feels fine in the other 4 gears did anybody ever run into this before?

hi, i had a shop replace all internal bearings and after the first ride it started slipping in 5th gear and only in high revolutions, did you find the problem to yours?

Your 5th gear dogs are probably worn. You will have to replace the two gears adjacent to the shift fork. Good luck

Try removing the clutch plates and oil them in engine oil. If that don't work looks like you will need to replace the gears as stated..
