The problem you describe is most likely the gear dogs in the transmission have become rounded due to abusive shifting ( full throttle power shifts). The only fix is a transmission overhaul. This will require engine removal and disassembly it replace the damaged parts. Typically that includes the shift drum, shift forks and gears.
