Check the free play on your clutch lever. My first impression is that you have too much free play and the clutch is not fully disengaging when you pull the lever in.

It is better to have more free play than less. First gear always bangs.

You can only adjust your clutch when the bike is over night cold. You need more free play than you think. (You tube Victory clutch adjustment).

So I have to ask. How old is the oil? What kind are you using? If you are near the mileage for a change then change it. If you are using Vic's oil then it is useless after 3k . A good quality full Syn JASO MA rated oil can go 5k easily.
