When you changed the stator/rectifier, did you remove the shifter/linkage?
If it ran fine before, transmissions don’t fail while sitting. Also, have you changed the oil recently? Some bikes shift better with different oils but it seems strange that it would only be one gear change.
I would guess that it is something simple like the linkage.
