Hello and thank you for your question, My name is Ron and I will assist you today.

If you are able to shift through all other gears with no grinding then the problem is not very likely a bad clutch but instead most likely an internal transmission concern, such as the shift forks or sliders, at either rate the transmission is going to need a tear down.
