2006 XV1900 noise, no move

I've been noticing a bit of a whine/roar noise when I let off the throttle. Well finally I'll have to figure it out. I was pulling up to my driveway, shifted to first, and had no power to the rear wheel. The engine sounds fine, gear shifting seems ok (I can go up through the gears), but when I let the clutch out I get this noise: https://goo.gl/photos/axQreMyacozYf3fq9 The speedo climbs too, but no movement.

Anyone have any thoughts? The clutch didn't feel bad.

Obvious question but did you check to make sure the belt is still there and in one piece. Past that, it almost has to be the clutch or front sprocket.

Thanks for your reply.. Yes the belt is there and looks good. I'm starting to think maybe it's the transfer gear?? I'm not sure if the transfer oil had been changed or checked (probably not). I did the oil changes on the bike the last few years, but that was it. I don't think my father had it in for any other service other than tires..

EDIT: I think that is what you meant by front sprocket? I'm used to shaft drive, so this setup is new to me. Any idea on how much work is involved with that?

I was referring to the front pulley. It's splined. I would do as complete a visual as I could of the drive train outside the cases. Raise the back up and spin tbe back wheel with the bike turned off and in neutral and see if you can hear and/or see what the issue is.

Thanks for the info. No noise when I push it in neutral.

It's thunder and lightning here today and it broke down at the bottom of my driveway, very far away from it's shed. I'll look into it over the next few days.

You need to check the front belt pulley. Its a common problem.

Here is a link on the how and why of the front belt pulley

I doubt its the x-case. Even without fluid changes its durable.

Worse case, transmission failure....medium case, clutch failure.

Thank you very much for the info, here's hoping that's what it is.

Weather dependant, I'll have a look at it tonight.

Well, finally had the time and weather to have a closer look. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, unfortunately, I think this ended up being a big problem..

Sure enough, that nut was loose. I was able to turn it by hand. I took it off and found this: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1jQ...uSMUENWJCgcNDg

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Gr...UuwJbwK6ok8bjg
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ef...IL6-BQ03jSp_hg

So a few questions..
Has anyone had any luck getting this covered under a warranty (this is an 06)? With the amount of reports, this should be a recall! And it isnt anything that would be checked under normal service.

Any idea in how much work is involved in replacing the middle driven shaft?

Thanks for all your help!

You can try to get extended assistance.

Other than that, its not a HUGE deal. Drain the x-case, remove the exhaust, rear head pipe, exup valve (and anything else small in front of the right side chain cover). Open the cover, remove the primary nut and take the pinion gear out along with the spur gear (attached to the ganked up shaft) out. You will need a new shaft and primary belt pulley. The interior of the x-case should be clean of shavings but I would want to replace the shaft bearings which may require a confident technicians touch; but its not an impossible driveway job.

You are looking to replace #13 and the belt pulley not pictured along with all gaskets, exhaust rings and gear fluid.
