Final Drive Gone?

I'm afraid to even ask this but I would like some other input.
The video below was made by someone with the exact problem I'm having.
I haven't had any real issues out of this bike until today
I did notice slipping when I got on it hard in 3rd last week but I rode it last weekend without any issues.
Today was the first day riding since then, pulled out of the driveway fine and then it just let go.
I would love to hear it's something simple or suggestions on things to check.
I'm not a mechanic but I can do some basic things.

Thanks in advance for any info you can give.

start it up and put it in 1st and slowly let the clutch out then see if the driveshaft is rotating.or leave the engine off and put it in 1st and try to push the bike

Yes, I can put it in first and roll it and I hear it clicking, the drive shaft isn't rotating, it actually moves forward a little each time it clicks almost like it's popping out of gear.

sounds like the rear ends gone. you can get them on ebay but for the 650 there a couple hundred dollars. you need to take it apart to make sure. if you can change the brakes on your car you can change a rear end.

Does it require taking the back tire off or just the final drive assembly?

yes its connected to the back tire. i'm not familiar with the 650 . you can download a manual . you have to follow the bolt tighting sequence for reassembly. i checked ebay they are like $600.00 bucks.

Sounds like I'll probably end up selling it off for parts, the bike and it has 42,000+ on it.
I would need someone more mechanical than me to fix it so it'll be hard to justify putting that much into it.
Thanks for the info, that's what I thought the issue was going to be.

Is it a 650 or 1100?
I have a complete final drive for a 1100 with just 7K miles on it I can let go for real cheap ! I mean CHEAP!

Most probably the splines in the drive shaft to final drive failed from lack of lubrication, not the drive itself but the result is the same, I believe the parts aren't available separately anyway. This is why it's important to lube them every tire change at the very least.
