The tech section would have been the best place.

So it goes down into 1st OK and you can shift to 2nd OK, but what does it do when you try to shift to 3rd and up?

Does the shift lever not move at all?

Have you checked that the shift lever or shift rods are not hitting anything on the up shift?

Sounds like a bent, or broken shift fork to me... When it is NOT running, you can shift up INTO higher gears? Are you sure it is actually shifting to 3rd+ while not running? Try shifting it to 3rd, and then start the bike, and try to move by letting the clutch out a bit. Does it move? Does it make any noises?

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
