Clutch to Transmission Connection

Recently while driving my 2005 fz6, I was turning off a freeway exit ramp when suddenly the bike lost all power to the rear wheel. I guessed my clutch went out, so towed it home and opened the crankcase.

I found that two of the friction plates were broken and in pieces. I replaced all the friction plates, and now the clutch is working fine. I know this because if I take off the oil cap I can see the clutch spinning while the bike is running. Acceleration increases the speed of its spinning. Clutch hand lever pulls it out and squashes it back together all how it’s supposed to.

However, the bike still freely changes gears independently from the clutch. So still no power to the transmission (I’m assuming). Bike does not stall out running in first with the clutch hand lever out. Bike rolls freely in first gear with the engine off. Also, briefly it was having trouble shifting into first gear while the engine was off at one point (&#x1f3fc.

My most logical conclusion is that whatever nut or gear that serves as a bridge between the clutch and the input shaft/axle on the transmission is sheared off or somehow broken. So my question is where and how can I find that connection to so I can see if it’s broken/how to fix it.

If anyone recognizes my situation and has any other suggestions as to what the problem could be, please let me know. Any insights appreciated.

This is sounding like a transmission issue. Yamaha has pretty bullet proof transmissions. I would check you front drive sprocket first. make sure it's solidly on the output shaft.
