that is the gear housing that's broke.

once you get it apart you can find out why.

you might have a broken belt that wrapped up in the clutch and caused it

thanks OAD
I wish you were closer, I would drag it to your place.
It will get looked into this weekend. Hope the housing can be replaced. That will be a new experience for me.

Didn't hear anything. The back wheel just stopped and it drug the back tire for about 15 ft. or more. Fortunately, I was still on my long driveway and wasn't going very fast. The engine starts without a problem.

2 the gasket

Parts on order
now we wait

I was wondering how it managed to get broke and after reading your post, I did it the same way.
I have always put something it the spokes to break loose the nut. Never had a problem with several tire changes.
My last tire change must have damaged it, but it took a while to break. Almost 5000 miles.

Thanks OAD, I am off to get an electric impact. That would be easier anyway.

I wonder ???? (Hate to change the Subject)
While working this issue, you should go ahead and Replace the Brake Fluid for the Rear Brake. Bleeding that Rear looks like a real pain...
I have not done mine yet, but don't look forward to it based on where it is.

I am changing rear brake pads - parking brakes - brake fluid and rear tire. All ready dropped the hub oil.
Planning on taking pictures of what to take loose to change back break pads. I am still not sure. Will post it on the other post that I promised on and add a link here.

Wonderful...

I had changed on my MP3/250 already, and swapped the OEM Bleeders to "Speed Bleeders" which makes things easy. I purchased extra Bleeders assuming they are the same size on the 16/500 ABS.
