Cool 02 sportster 1200 shifting problems

Hi my name is joe, i'm new to this site. I own a 2002 sportster 1200 custom,I have a issue with shifting.i recently took a trip, on the way back home everything went as normal i came to a stop put the bike in nutral,light turns green i hit first and take of like always,now heres where all the trouble begins:i shift to second only my bike wont allow me to shift past nutral it wont go up at all so i shift back to first then it allows me into second and so on,however by the time i make it back home about 175 miles away i cant get any gear but first. following the advice of several oldtimers i know i adjust the clutch , nothing,then again following advice again i replace the clutch plates,still nothing,i'm not rich i'm doing the work myself,got four kids,had to save two years to get my bike,any advice other then bring it to a dealer would greatly help also would like to point out that my nutral light wont come on either
