Shift Fork

So i'm relatively new to this site and i'm having an issue with shifting. She's a 2001 Honda F4i and she doesn't want to go from 1st to 2nd. Sometimes it drops out of gear or hesitates to go into it. The person i bought the bike from had it setup for GP shifting and switched it back. I think that they had pressed on it too hard as well as my brother had dropped it on the left side. Granted it was in grass standing still but none the less it was still dropped. So i was going to see about changing the shift fork and/or drum since i've never been here before and i was told that those are the two that typically go bad as well as the shift shaft. But i'm crazy busy right now so i was going to see about taking a day or two off work but if anyone could give me a quick overview as to what's involved as far as how much time i should take off to get this job done. I was going to buy those 3 items ahead of time and get this done over the time i would take off. Any advice i appreciate.
Thank you,

Re: Shift Fork

if its hard going into gear and pops out it could as easily be a bad/worn dog or a combination of that n shifter fork. really the only way you will know is to get in there n see what you can see. no sense in buying parts until you know whats wrong with it. the service manual will give you a pretty good idea of what all is involved. probably could even find a video on youtube concerning the f4i transmission. its a pretty common bike so id bet there is something. even if it doesnt address the exact issue you could get a good idea of whats going on inside.

ive never done anything on that bike particularly but ill say its prob about a medium skill level job. if you can follow the manual it shouldnt be out of a back yard mechanics abilities. its plenty of work but nothing super complex. i sent you a link to the service manual download for the f4i.
