2015 with 1700 miles. Just changed the oil, everything looked good. Went for a 20 mile ride, then while in some soft dirt, I dropped the bike on the right side. No damage, fully protected . Now it's hard to up shift. With the engine off doing it by hand it feels very rough. And ideas would be really appreciated

Sct300,
Sorry that you can't swing by and let me take it for a ride to verify or decline your problem.
But, I can't understand how dropping your bike on the RH side could possibly affect the gearshift, which is on the LH side.

You need to 'roll the rear tire' back and forth as you attempt to shift with a dead engine. Or need to actually be 'moving' with engine running.

I can only suggest 'non-issue', go ride your bike!
I've been down at 60+ Twice, my 75,000 mile bike still shifts fine. Both times on the RH side. Even more times on the LH side at <20!
