I believe in most cases repairing a broken internal shift mechanism requires splitting the cases. There is one exception, where the shifter still works, but has a lot of in and out play. You can remove the shifter from the shaft and put a spacer between the engine and shifter, so the shaft can't slide in or out. That does not actually fix it internally, more like a bandaid solution, but it can last a very long time. You might want to look through Roache's videos, he did a whole series of great videos on completely rebuilding a VN750 engine. They are way better than those grainy pictures in the manuals.
