Versys no drive

My 2009 Versys has 110000km on it yesterday I lost all drive to the front sprocket, it looks like the sprocket shaft is coming out of the gearbox, any ideas?

Is the clutch engaging? Does it clunk when you put it into first gear?

Shaft Sheared?

Looks like you may have sheared your drive shaft off. Apparently the gear box is a cartridge, involves draining the engine oil.This is fairly extensive, I looked at a MK-2 service manual, starting on section 9-35.First thing, remove your speed sensor assembly before you break it. If you can spin your wheel, and while rotating the the drive chain try changing gears. It is also possible that a retainer broke and the shaft has moved past the internal spline. Either way it needs to come apart.

That looks expensive. Sorry for your misfortune.
