transmission troubles

is there anybody that knows why im having trouble switching gears. i have a 2000 zx6r. just recently it doesnt want to switch gears. the worst is trying to get it into first, ill down shift but it wont go into first. sometimes it will be "in neutral" when really its not in neutral. i usually have to hammer on it to get it to get in gear. anybody have any idea?

Frist question did you buy the bike new or just recently purchased it "used" & if the latter then did the prior owner(s) abuse the bike like trick, riding, shifting without feeling there was a need for a clutch & such?

It could be the fork selector is way out of whack & those inbetween neutrals points to fork selector problems.
