Try changing the oil and inspecting for metal shaving. Check the tightness on the shifter to the shaft. Than put the bike on a center-stand and pull the spark plug. Find neutral and as you slowly rotate the back wheel in normal direction try to push the lever into first while feeling/listening as you do so, you're feeling for any resistance or chatter that would indicate warped shifting forks.

I'll bet you have a bent shift fork. Repair would require spiting the engine case.
