No, the shift cam (drum) only goes in one way. the shift function is approx 300 degrees around the cam and the other 60 degrees or so is open space. TT rocks.
I just put together a WR and had the same problem. You CAN put in the shift drum incorectly, I've done it and had the same problem and had to split the cases to fix it.
As far as the WR to YZ conversion gos the shift forks and drum are the same p/n's. Did you make sure all of the gears were orieted correctly on the shafts and spacer were in the correct places? Are you using the the old shift forks? Are any of the shift fork roll pins damaged? I have done a lot of tranny work on bikes and some problems are difficult to diagnose but not a mysyery.

I had the same problem you describe and the reason was the detent wheel was out of time with the shift drum. I got in a hurry when I went to assemble the detent assembly, and when I torqued the bolt that holds it together I pushed the dowel pin flush with the side of the shift drum. 1st-3rd gear worked but I coudn't engage 4th or 5th. I had to split the cases to remove the shift drum and push the dowel pin back to it's correct height (not an easy task!).
