That is a possibility. She is very heavy and could damage a shift fork in a fall like that. You wouldn't know for sure unless you pulled it apart for inspection. If everything else works OK, then probably the 5th gear fork as it looks like that fork only handles 5th gear or 5th and 6th if it was a 6 speed without reverse.

Re: k1200lt binds 5 gear

That is pretty hard to do if you dropped it in first. The 5th gear fork is only for 5th gear as there is no 6th. I have seen a bent fork but it was in a transmission sent to me for repair and it was already partially disassembled and it think it was damaged in shipping. Try it with the bike on the center stand, engine off and rock the rear wheel back and forth as you step up and down through the gears. See if there is a distinct difference in the 5th gear doing that.

You said you cleaned and lubed the linkage. Hope you did a full disassemble like shown here
