#1 I'm not sure if it's thr transmission or the clutch. But the bike runs fine...engine starts doesn't seem tohave any issue. The bike does not go forward. No drive at all. It feels like it's going into gear.

Anybody hear of any similar problems?

If it is going into gear, the clutch is most likely the culprit. Transmissions tend to be noisy when they die. Drain the oil and pull the filter. Sweep a magnet through the oil to check for steel particles. Next, pull the clutch cover off and examine the clutch.
