Need Help 04 r6 transmission or clutch issue?

long story but hopefully you guys can help me out.
OK I was going about 100 or so on the beltway and bike decides to slow down for no reason. I slow down pull over and get someone to pick me and the bike up. I purchased this r6 used and put 2k miles on this bike to total 14k miles. I know the guy stunted and layed the bike down so I know it was going to have problems sooner or later. So here is the problem, First the kickstand sensor was filthy so it would not start so we clean it, bike starts and I think that it's fixed. No Go. The bike will not ingage but I can go through all of the gears. It will rev and show mph and that's it. I'm guessing that I need a new clutch and springs. So is my clutch due for repairs ? or is this transmission issue ?
Thanks for any help or tips

Sounds like the clutch.

One thing to check though, R6's are fairly notorious for the c/s sprocket nut coming off and the sprocket coming off.
Check the it's still on too.

If you can't get it figured out, bring it by and I'll diagnose it real quick, no charge.

Sorry guys I had to borrow my cousins screen name bagedtaco, to post real quick. Ok I read on another forum before anyone had posted and another guy has the same problem but he had changed his clutch but still has the same issue so I will check the front sprocket out and see whats going on.
Thanks Patrick for the help I appreciate the tip !
Since the weathers acting weird I'm not to worried about riding anytime soon.
Now I have to study for a test on monday and worry about the bike come Tuesday.
