2007 jACKPOT WILL NOT SHIFT INTO SECOND GEAR? PLEASE HELP!!

Gentlemen, I need your help! I purchased a 2007 vegas jackpot one year ago this month. It had 3000 miles on it when I purchased it and it has 7000 miles now. I noticed when I first bought it that it was hard to find neutral, but was told that it was normal for that year and model. Last week all of a sudden, it would not shift into second with my foot. I could reach down and force it into second with my hand. No problem with the rest of the gears. It even pulls good in second , no slippage in either gear. just can't shift from first to second? Please give me some options or personal experience on this.
Thank you for any HELP or ADVISE on what to do?

If the external shifter rod ends are clean and free, and the clutch is adjusted properly then I can say with 99% certainty that you need a shifter ratchet. PN 1341416 costs about $70 and an hour of labor.

I had many dirt bikes in my life that I give HELL and never had a transmission problem. Lot less expensive bikes too!!
When was the last oil change?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

I'm going to hint at this for a suggestion but you know most times people don't like to hear other suggestions on how to spend YOUR MONEY!! I trust them but I'm just not sure they know what to look for? When they tell me they have been in business for 10 years and have never had this happen? I would be getting on the horn to Victory for so incite before taking the engine out. Thanks for your help and comments.
I too have been working on vics for 10 yrs and have seen this problem many times. I would never drop the motor until at least trying the ratchet first!

Hey guys,
Quick update. The guys at my dealership '' Coastal Victory '' have come through once again!! AS THEY ALWAYS DO !! They have got me well on my way to riding again. If it seemed in an earlier post that I was disappointed, DAMN right I was, but NOT with my dealership, just at the fact that I was having the problem. Didn't mean to make it sound like I was taking it out on them or that it was their fault. '' SORRY GUYS '' The guys at '' Coastal '' have always give me top shelf service and RESPECT. RESPECT is what they will get. They are there to sale and service a '' GREAT '' product and do a DAMN good job of it!! I will be buying my next bike from them '' VICTORY '' and send any referrals to them that I run up with. Thanks for all your help.
Special thanks to '' Coastal Victory '' and the guys for all your help!!
YOU GUYS ROCK !!
