Same bend here, how did you corrected it? By hammering or heating ?

Something else may be bent or binding. Take the assembly apart and check that it moves freely before hooking it back up to the engine's shift shaft. Lube the pivots and bushings. Make sure the joints are not turned in such a way that they are binding.

Bending the lever back carefully using an adjustable wrench on the shaft/rod may work, or it may snap, so have a new one ready if you need the bike for transportation. Heating may help keep it from breaking.

How much free play do you have in the clutch cable (measured at the clutch lever)?

If there is too much free play, it makes shifting back into neutral difficult. Conversely, too little free play in the clutch cable causes the clutch to slip.

A while back I was having shifting issues. One of the issues is the bike seemed to not want to go into neutral easily along with not wanting to upshift without putting tension on the upshift switch prior to putting it in gear. I changed the oil and it totaled fixed the issue.
