Recently discovered through my mechanic after the bike ceased on a ride, that 5th gear is welded/locked/jammed onto the gear shaft. He couldn't separate the gear from the shaft, even after using a 12 ton press.
All this discovered after splitting cases & taking every little piece apart in the motor.
Anybody have any ideas?

you could try heat cycling the part... but chances are you're gonna have to buy new parts
