Your english sucks and the description of the problem could be better. But here's a guess based on what I can figure out from the above.

Maybe it's not the clutch but the tranny. You say the shifter bent or broke? If the bike wasn't running when it fell this could easily have bent a shift fork or two. That would cause it to jump out of gear and other similar problems.

It sounds like there is air in the clutch line if it works OK until it heats up. The Honda shop should have inspected for damage to the clutch master cylinder & fluid reservoir, hose and clutch slave. Not knowing mileage or if the case was damaged, or if it was running at the time leaves it open to conjecture...

+1 if the clutch system isn't leaking fluid somewhere then you still have a bubble in there and haven't gotten it bled right yet.

When it disengages and re-engages, is it a smooth transition, or rough, like skipping in and out of gear, or like an automatic transmission?

are you saying the clutch is slipping?, but it does not slip when cold? did you have to take off the slave cylinder cover ? was everything good in there and was it clean ,a whole heap grease or filth may allow the pushrod to stick when it heats up. Any more info , remembering that i am from new zealand and our english is kind of different
. cheers.josh
