Ill give it a shot and suggest that you check the shift lever and see if it has broke loose from the cup inside the shifter housing.

Also there is a ball on the end of the shifter that engages the slots in the shifter forks it could be bent or the top of the fork could be broke.

Without knowing what your shifting problem is that is were I would start.
I hope this helps.

Pull the shifter cover for inspection.
