Problem with shifting from 5th to 6th gear

So I do not know much about the mechanics of bikes but I just recently bought a used 2006 Honda cb599 with about 5000 miles on it. I noticed when I ride the bike harder and get up to speed quicker that when I shift from 5th to 6th gear it sometimes finds a false neutral and the rpms shoot up towards the red line area. I either have to re-shift or shift down. I have done some research but haven't found much other then my shifting could be the problem or that maybe it is something with the shifting mechanism or possibly the tranny of the bike? I was just wondering if anyone has had similar problems and what the solution was? Thanks for your time
