650 L Won't Shift!!!!

My 650 L will not shift up or down gears. The shifter moves it's full range of motion. I can take off in 1st and it may take 7-8 times to get it to shift into second. Same for every gear. Seems to downshift a LITTLE better.

&%$#@!?

Shift fork?

Sounds like the mechanism that goes from the shift shaft to the shift drum is out of whack.

Has it taken a hit (up, down, in) on the shift shaft?

Or (and here are the more hopeful things to check)

-is the shifter hitting the side case of the engine?

-is the shifter loose on the shift shaft?

-did you just change to MX boots?

No new boots. No hitting case. Not loose.

ummmmm sounds to me like something in the case is majorly messed up.....my neighbor's ktm 65 had the same problem.....he still hasnt fixed it completely.....its been about 2 months and 20 hours of work on it but i dont know if its the same thing :D:D:D
