I had a similar fall on my '11, shredded the shifter, left peg and muffler. No tranny issues.

Bad part is it is very difficult, or near impossible to shift out of 5/6 down to 3/4. Looking at the fiche appears there are 3 different splines so he's thinking he bent the fork for 3/4 being in 4th at the time.

I've NEVER heard of that on these bikes and am a bit disappointed if a fall on a gravel road can do that much damage, but don't see what else it could be.

Wondering if anyone has heard of similar?

Bike is a 2012 R with 2k miles.....
