Hope that your shift shaft, or whatever it's called, isn't bent. Look for proper position, smooth shifting action, and check for leaks around the seal. Hopefully you can find a used shift lever, e.g. from someone who has installed rearsets.
Replace the clutch lever.
It happens to all of us sooner or later. I recently half-dropped mine for the first time in the 3+ years I've had this bike. I was too tired to dismount and keep it balanced and put it on the center stand (without lowering the side stand). Luckily, I and the junk in my garage were in the way, damage was limited to two small scuffs on the left side case, which I can live with. Two neighborhood teenage boys who just happened to be in the alley pulled the bike up and off me. Embarrassing!
