Unhappy Help.....I can't shift into 3rd gear

The pedal broke off the gear lever when i went down a few weeks ago.So i brought an aftermarket shift lever to fix it. I found some info on the svrider site on how to put it on. I did everything right, it worked fine for one day. The next day i tryed to shift into first and it became loose. So i tighted everyhing back up,and now i can't shift passed second gear. .Can someone please help me here,i wanna ride this weekend. It sucks i've only been able to ride my bike 3 times and i only had it going on a month now.

By the way I have a suzuki SV650S

Check through all your internal shift linkages. (Detent system, groove plates, shift shaft position, etc.) Sounds like when it came loose that something could have moved out of proper position. But thats just a guess scince I can't really see what your looking at.
