Probably an easy fix...

Just bought a 79 xs1100 special and it ran perfectly until this morning. As I started it it turned over a couple times then stopped. Checked the battery, full power. Toggled with the engine on and ignition to no avail. Let it sit for an hour thinking it would fix itself. No luck. A few weird things that are also going on: its almost like its stuck in neutral, but if i push it around in 2nd, try to jump start it, it will kick back down into 1st. I'm not SUPER mechanical savy, but if I can locate the problem I can read the necessary material to fix it. Also, it pops out of gear in 2nd around 5,000rpm. Help?
