I have a 2017 ktm xcw 300 with 50hrs on it , having troubles up shifting this week. It down shifts no problem. The shifter did bend after hitting a tree last week , it has been replaced, but now the bike doesn't want to up shift at certain times, any ideas on what the issue may be .

If you bent the shifter, you may have bent the shift shaft in the process. Not a hard fix, you will have to pop off the inner clutch cover to pull out the shift shaft. Should be plenty of videos available to give you a good idea how to check it. Does the shift shaft seal show any signs of wear/leaky oil?

sounds like a bent shift fork... hence why it works good one way, but not the other.
