clutch shoes probably worn out. just see if your clutch bell ( the gear that sits on your engine) spins. If it does spin, check your spur gear (the gear that sits above the engine). It can either be stripped OR your slipper clutch is too loose.

check the manual for slipper setup.

And some other possibillities are:

- a slipping oneway bearing
- broken 1st gears
- missing drive shaft(s)
