working on restoring my first ever bike a Honda CB400 Hawk II, after a lot of work ive gotten the bike mostly together and noticed one thing when i clicked through my gears (while the bike was off, not moving) when hitting the gear lever i am only able to get the confirming "CLick" 3 times. Although im not sure without opening the tranny i have to assume this is 1st, N 2nd and 3rd. Starting from the bottom and pulling up on the lever theres a small amount of free movement, then resistance, then a confirming snap back and a noticable "click" from the engine. Putting me in what i think is neutral. i can do the same into 2nd and 3rd but when i pull up again its just all free range of motion for an inch or two and then i hit a barrier, It feels mechanical not like spring pressure you can move by pushing harder. I can do this with or without the clutch in dosent change anything (dont know if that means my clutch is screwed two or if the issues are related) any insight is helpful as ive search for a similar problems without any decent results coming up. Any help or insight is appreciated.

The transmission gears have to be turning for proper shifting, because of how the gears are engaged. If the rear wheel is connected to the transmission output, you can rotate it as you shift, and it should go through all the gears.
