Re: Won't go into 5th gear.
Shift linkage is my first response. A caveat though as the fifth gear has its own shift fork and if the the little pin on it is broken (goes into the shift drum, but I have never seen that before) then you will never get to 5 th. Item #4 in the picture. #2 is 1 st & 2 nd, #3 is 3 rd and 4 th.
Note to self do not use # to represent a Number any more as the web site interprets it as a hash tag. Damn social media!
But seriously when you have the bike back put it on the center stand and rock the rear wheel. Push down shift lever to confirm first, then continue rocking the wheel as you lift up an hear a gear change, there should be four in the up direction (you started in first).
