I need the collective help of the forum. I was riding my GTS at a steady speed of about 25 mph when without any warning whatsoever I lost power. It seemed to be running perfectly. There was no knocking or any other unusual noise. There were no warning lights and the oil level is fine. The starter button produced a click but nothing else. One small, fortunate thing was that I was pushing distance from home.
I removed the transmission cover and variator. Everything looked normal but ominously the crankshaft will not turn. At all. In either direction. The next step would be to remove the valve cover and/or starter to see if there is anything obvious. It's getting late and with the holiday weekend coming up it might be a few days.
I'm wondering if possibly something like the starter drive might have come apart and wedged against the ring gear. Do you have any ideas as to what else I should look for?
