If you hear a loud clicking noise when riding at 5mph and slowly accelerating to 25mph, you have a broken tooth on first gear. The pressure that broke the gear tooth was present on the gear that it meshes with. Both gears must be replaced. If only the known broken gear is replaced you will need to do the repair all over again 10 minutes after completing the first repair because the meshing gear will loose it's weakened tooth. In this case I believe the meshing gear is actually the main shaft. I don't have a gear shift pattern diagram for your bike but when the gearbox is opened up the meshing gear will be obvious.

The entire engine gets completely torn down. Not recommended for the novice mechanic. Flywheel puller, torque wrench, impact driver and case splitter required. I would install new crank bearings and seals (at least do the seals) and a new drive axle bearing and seal at the sprocket end. Now is the time to do it while the engine is already apart.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

When it's in gear, does the engine seem to bog or creep forward? 1rst is the "hardest" gear for your tranny to accommodate, your clutch may need adjustment. With a little thought a person can visualize how the handle and cable "pull" in the clutch, and add a little more action to it. I always recommend buying a service manual from say amazon for example. It's the best $$ you'll ever spend keeping your ride up to par.
Eliminating inadequate clutch release I'd suspect a bent shifting fork or binding in the tranny which always means the engine will have to come out and crack the case. Best of luck to you

The transmission control module is expensive and if the valve body solenoids went bad, then you didn't get a raw deal. Labor, parts and fluid are about right price wise.
You could not fix it on your own without a lot of tools and knowledge of the transmission.

Cant shift? reverse grinds? and pressure in clutch is low

What you describe sounds very much like the clutch is failing to disengage.
Fluid level being fine and no leaks under the car is good, but doesnt mean there isnt something wrong with either the master cylinder, slave cylinder, or the associated parts.

Highly unlikely there is a fault with the flywheel or clutch as failures with these would normally give no drive in any gear.
