Anybody heard of this sort of transmission failure?

Initially it would not shift down easily but shift up was OK. Within 30 mins it would only shift down when the bike was stopped. But it would shift if fine if the engine was stopped

Took it into the Shop Nothing external was found, it has had a recent service etc. Now its locked in gear and wont change at all. Clutch in to move it about so it looks like i have some dollars to spend...
They are about to pull the whole engine and trans out to have a look. 18 hours in labour alone for that job.

Bike has only 5000K on it and i have had it from new. and of course its out of warranty :|

Update

Well its insides have been spread on the bench and its definately broke

The shaft was fine (My local dealership is into drag racing in a big way and replacing the shift shaft is a 10 min fix.) It is the shift actuator thats broken so the full strip down was required.

Dealer hasn't seen this failure before.
I'll try and post some pics of the broken bits when i pick it up.

I'm not looking forward to the bill but having my bike back for the holidays would be great(if it ever stops raining)
