Question about Motorcycles
This problem came out of the blue as I rode it home from work one day. I stopped to grab some grub at a store, when I came out I started my bike, shifted into first, let off the clutch and...nothing, the engine reved up as if I was going to drive away but the bike didn't move. upone further inspection (once I hauled the bike home) I did not notice any irregular engine noise, dripping fluid, or any observable change in the bikes appearance or engine sound. I put the bike on block so the rear tire could move freely. Started the bike, shifted into first (gears still appear to shift and respond normally) and the bike tire began to spin as I idled it up. I noticed that I could stop the tire from spinning with a force as simple as my foot. It was suggested that I tighten the clutch adjustment, as I did, I noticed the clutch and the change of the gears to be smoother and snappy, it DID NOT help my bike to propel itself forward.... im at a loss, thinking that maybe there are teeth missing or damaged on an internal sprocket. Im apprenhensive about taking my bike to the shop because I feel that this has the potential to be a simple solution I haven't thought of yet.
U need to git a clymer manual for complete repair--sounds like the clutch needs replacin or repair--disengages ok but the plates are not grippn--dont bring it to a dealer-go private if need--isnt that hard of a job-but special tools probly needed

You only need to change the seals at the top (Master cylinder)
Check for leakage at the bottom (Slave cylinder) if any, change the seals as well.

Adjust the clutch again , and make sure you have sport trans ( HD ) in the primary. Also make sure your primary chain is adjusted correctly. as the bike gets hotter, the chain tightens up putting alot of pressure on the clutch pack as well as the stator ( your charging system )

This sounds like a broken tooth on the main axle. This would account for the lump in every gear and a power loss due to the axle being bent also. I would change the axle, support bearings, and the gear the axle engages. Check the output shaft for bending also.
This could be bad bearings on the shafts but is is highly unlikely if the gearbox oil has been kept at proper levels. In any event, the gearbox will need to be opened up for inspection.

The clutch lever should have some tension, so could be a problem with the hydraulic actuator stuck, or a failure of the clutch. try bleeding the clutch, or pull the clutch cover off and see if the pressure plate moves
