ok, but you can get it into 1st and let out the clutch and nothing happens? sounds like the clutch fibers are gone. after you fix that, see if that helps the second gear issue. if not, that is a whole nuther animal that you are going to have to address.

had a lot of clutches go out on my mx bike. its the fibers that contact the friction plates. all you gotta do it pop the cover off and check it out. DO NOT REMOVE ANYTHING UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING!! the clutch is a delecate thing to mess with and the plates go in a specific alternating order.

its really the best worst situation. if that makes sence. clutch plates are made to wear down over time. they have to have some give or else the bike wouldnt slowly take off when letting out the clutch. so if something had to go wrong. your lucky if its the plates.

Could be a bad clutch. could be a clutch release stuck. could be a lot of things.if you can`t see the problem DON`T take apart.if you are unsure about it. take it to someone that knows about bikes...PM flyin`duc he`s close by (tomball) he could take a look at it. and give you some ideal anyway....

No kidding.......... Way to show rider support MotoHouston! Tell me this wasnt the noob run and they still left you there?

But as mentioned before it does sound like your fibers are shot. But since you had to ask what fibers were i would suggest that you dont open this bad boy up by yourself. But if indeed this is the problem its a pretty simple fix and once fixed it sounds like youll have your gear change problem fixed as well. Good luck!

48K miles.. the clutch might be a little worn lol

Weird that it doesnt send any power to the back tire at all. Hope its nothing serious!

Hope you get it fixed soon and get back on the road!

put it up on a rear stand or a jack and put it in first. If its just a bad clutch, it should still spin the rear wheel without a load on it to make it break friction.
