Bike won't shift

Bike:2014 S1000RR
25K Miles
I was out today for about 4 hours everything was going great, and then out of no where my bike would not shift(I had to stomp on the gear to make it go into first) And if I try to switch to 2nd it just jumps into neutral. The gears work if I use the quickshifter but I can not downshift. I thought it was the detent plate had broke, but I checked it that is fine, what else should I check?


Update:
https://streamable.com/bejwl

Looks like it may actually be the selector shaft

Update: Everything is fixed, turns out it was the selector shaft, so far no false neutrals.

I'd change that spring and put in the new 6 pin selector thingie. There was an update a while back. Are you using 300V? How often do you change it?

I might just do that, also first time using 300V and I just put it in recently. Any idea of what could make the bike not able to switch gears? I also pulled out the clutch and some of the plates were pretty dry is that normal?

No, clutch plates should not be dry, but that wouldn't affect shifting I don't think. Not to start an oil war, but 300V is only good for about 300 miles and then should be changed. Motul 7100 would be a better choice and it's cheaper too.

300 Miles ??? Not 3000? And I guess I will go to 7100 After this

Yeah, 300. Pretty hard to make any judgement if you're shifting it without the engine running and the bike moving down the road.

I started it up and still hard to shift. what would be better if I record the gear cluster or the actual shifter when trying to shift?

Just ride it normally and try to explain in detail what's happening. Have you changed anything on the bike recently?

Nope nothing changed, I was out riding for about 4 hours (shifting fine) on the way home it got started to get stuck in gear (hard to switch out of gear.) Is there anyway I can tell if its the selector shaft? Would the damage be very noticeable?
