apologies for being longer than a mere hour or two. Things got in the way.
Anyhow, since Iím just awesome here you go.
You need to remove the clutch basket to get to see it like I have done.

Note the first picture, the word you're looking for in regards to the shifting linkage mechanism is ridiculous.
The VF is a challenge to shift properly. Its best done with throttle control and no clutch action.
