Missing 5th gear

I recently bought a 2008 blast off CL, big bore kit installed 'cuz the previous owner rode it without oil and busted up the piston head. Anyways, it runs fine and I'm loving it, but it's missing a 5th gear.

Sounds sketchy (It's really bothering me), but there is no gear above 4th. The clutch lever just won't budge above that. At highway speeds, I need to rev fairly high (~3000k if I'd guess) to maintain 60mph, and it's a real buzzkill.

Has anybody seen this issue? Is this something that can be fixed by opening up the transmission? What in gods name could cause an issue like this?

RE: Missing 5th

I also bought a 2008 Blast and discovered that my 5-speed bike only goes up to 4. I haven't found any answers online. Hopefully someone can help us! Let me know if you figure it out outside of this forum! I take it up to about 70mph and it's ok...
