Clutch or drive problem 2009 K1200LT
Riding home from work the other day, highway speeds, (50-70....) shifting up and down from 4 to 5 as needed to get through traffic, RPMs 3,500-5,500, the connection from the engine to the drive just broke. no power from the engine to the drive, no unusual noise or vibration that I remember. I coasted to the shoulder to check it out. The transmission seams to shift up and down OK. When I rotate the back wheel, in gear, engine off, there is some friction and an unusual noise and feel coming from the drive shaft or transmission area as the wheel is rotated, but no connection to the engine. The engine starts and runs normal.
I trailed the bike home. Now looking into possible cause and repair.
Is it possible that the clutch just broke? Clutch and shifting worked very well up to this point.
Or is it a drive issue.
