Default 1994 sportster shifter jamming

I'm having some issues with my bike's shifter getting stuck and not going into gear. I have a pingel electric shifter and I thought it was the shift actuator had went bad but when the bike wasn't running and I was trying to cycle through the gears by just pushing the button the actuator would barely move I reached down to pull it up into gear the shifter was stuck in place and when I rocked the bike a little it would eventually go into gear after a couple tries and then the pingel would work again after a couple tries and then get stuck again. The bike has a fairly new clutch and bearings. I also adjusted the shifter pawl and readjusted the clutch. The shifter will do the same thing when I'm moving down the road, it will work a couple times and then barely move because its jammed.
I'm a paraplegic and have no use of my feet so I have to use the pingel to be able to ride and I'm wondering if there is something else I can check, maybe in my transmission? before I send this shifter off to be checked out by pingel because it could take them 6 weeks to get it back to me and it may not even be the problem. I have a fsm and have built this motor up so pulling the trans out if I have to isnt a big deal Any help is really appreciated!!

If all the shifting parts are in order, you might think about the gear dogs being worn.

Thanks, I'm looking at the fsm and it says that and shifter forks could be damaged. I think I'm gonna tear into it tomorrow, sooner I get on it the better! I'll post up what I find.
