its hard to say since you have it all buttoned up, but you must have missed something on assembly. try looking back at the shift mechanism. did you disassemble the cam from the drum? are the pawls correctly in place (didnt get jammed up on assembly)? take the right side cover off and inspect the operation of the shift mechanism, get someone to actuate the shifter while you inspect whats going on with the ratched mechanism and cam. if its shifting fine through 1st to second and you find that the drum doesn't want to move any further (even with assistance), than unfortunately the problem lies between the cases. i ALWAYS check the shifting before i put the cases back together, and most likely something has been assembled wrong internally.

The same thing happened when we put our 10 back together with the 450 detent spring. On the stand it wouldn't shift up to third unless you put a little presure down first so the detent could engage the star. When we rode it it never happened. And after about five hours of riding it went away, or worked itself in.
