Gear selection issue

Hi folks. Just wondering if anyone has had any issues going up the gears on the 750 (or the 500, not sure if they have a similar gear box). I've just crossed the 800 mile mark and my issue seems to be getting worse. It's happening way too often to be human error. When I pull the clutch in and pull the gear leaver up it doesn't feel like it travels all the way to where it should so it misses the next gear - and I give it a pretty good heave. Doesn't appear to matter if the bike is cold or hot. It was originally an issue going up from 2nd or 3rd but now it includes 4th and 5th as well. Any ideas?

Did you check your Clutch Cable Adjustment?? And Synthetic Oil Helps it shift smoother.

Might also want to adjust the lever itself.....just unloosen it, pull it off and move it down a tooth or two on the shaft. You'll be able to get a little more leverage to shift it.
