If that is a 250 or 360 I have found that the clutch basket needs to be removed, it is not necessary to split the cases.

The hours spent riding my Enduros is not deducted from my life span.

Year and model is always helpful.

If it's the shaft the shift lever is on, there normally wouldn't be anything "internal"... it's a through shaft.

locating gear lever shaft #5
If ya trying to put it in, it should slide right home to the selector arm thingy by hand. Are the splines slightly off line. Splines are so fine i'd have thought they'd find there way in without hanging inbetween. If ya trying to remove it then should just pull straight out unless its bent on the let side from being dropped on a rock in a get off in the dirt. If 'that's' the case then fit it back into place & fit a long srong tube over the sticky out bit where gear lever fits but ya tube going right up to the seal--then tweak it accordingly. Works for me.. If you've had the shaft right out the right side i think there's a washer behind that arm which could drop out of the way. Link below to a typical DT1. But i'm wrong damn it--no washer shown, so all good for you Yours look 250 or 360 early model.

Having a rethink & a cuppa i guess you mean its bent & won't come out. So parting the cases won't help. In fact you can't part them without straightening the shaft first--in which case you have no reason do part them. Hope that helps [confusing myself lol].
