Default Yamaha shifting mechanism

I am tying to put my bike together (almost there!) I am working on putting the clutch and shifting mechanism back together. The clutch is pretty straightforward but the shifter just doesn't make sense.

It's a 1983 Yamaha virago 750

I will run out and take a few pics after my daughter goes yo bed.

Are you having an issue putting it back together or what?

It seems like it's stuck in gear but it may just be me not understanding how it works.

What was the problem originally and why did you take that cover off? Is the clutch set properly?

It has not run since I got it. I couldn't get it to shift into neutral so I pulled it apart to find out why. The clutch rod was bent. I replaced it and am trying to put it back together but it doesn't seem right. I can't change gears. I pulled it back apart to look at it and I think I got the shifting mechanism in wrong.

Honestly I am tired of working on it and want to pay someone to fix it.

Usually not wanting to shift in neutral is caused by dirty oil or another issue. Clutch dragging etc.
