Can't Shift out of 5th after crash.

A bit different from the thread below me, haven't seen anything like it. I was riding in the fog and someone pulled out in front of me, locked up the brakes and went down. I had frame sliders on, however the shifter still caught the ground and managed to bend ALL the way back until it hit the foot peg. I ran and grabbed the bike and bent it back to get home. It shifted a few times after that but never all the way back into 1st. It ended up stuck in 5th. I replaced everything externally. The shifter, connections, made sure the bolt was tight. The shaft is moving but the gears aren't shifting. I've tried rolling the bike, letting the clutch out, nothing. It doesn't even try. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.
