May be possible that clutch is disengaging when shifting to first and/or drive not fully switched into first gear. Your 1st gear light may be lit, but actually isnt in a ready state.

Testimonial: "I pulled the carbs off, removwed float bowl cover, found one of the jets was clogged. All good now!!!!!"
sounds major. Clanking and low on oil sounds like a broken piston ring. Suggest dealer check with compression tester rear cylinder. Replace v star with Harley if necessary.
