Today again and before also a few times the gear don,t go in high gear but between 5 and 6  :003:
I must say it was always in a circumstance when riding quickly

yes same thing happens too mine, most of the time i change from 4th too 5th and into 6th without clutch just back off throttle a snik it up a gear seems too go in every time then. if i change up using clutch i just keep foot pressure on gearlever until i feel if go in gear which is sometimes delayed but does go in. if i take off from a standing start and change up every gear up till 6th when up it gears seem too go in smoothly using clutch every time. i think gear change problem is more lazy gearchange than problem with bike as i have had similar problem with all bikes i have owned even chain driven.

Normal a honda goes into gear even when you push a little less than normal with the foot.
The plate shift is made to go in a gear not to stay beween two gears.
When i push a little i dont have the problem but normal a honda must go smooth as butter

This can happen on Honda dirt bikes when the gear lever is set a little too low on the splines, you may be inadvertently  preventing the lever from going back fully to the 'middle' position in preparation for picking up the next gear

Try lifting the lever up one spline on the shaft (clockwise)

or buy a DCT  :431:

i did the lever a little more down so i automaticly will put more force when shifting up
And yes the next pan european will be a dct  :305:

I have had teh same thing happen on a few occasions. I thought it was me being lazy with the shifting.
average on my VFR1200X

Bikes owned: CBF250 - '08 V-Strom DL650 - '09 ST1300 Pan European - '13 VFR1200X - '14 Fazer 8

Try going the other way as I suggested then, you have nothing to lose as a HONDA gearbox does NOT normally rely on FORCE for an upshift!!!

I don,t understand the explanation of one splin clockwise turning because the gearshaft(bracket)
on the engine is operated with a rod operated with the foot.
Do you mean it would help if i move the bracket on the engine one splin clockwise?
