My Front Sprocket Came Loose!
Was riding home after work when my bike just cut out...still had power on the dash...
Pulled over and found the front sprocket nut had come off while I was riding.
I didn't hear any funny noises or felt any funny grinding...luckily the sprocket was still in place.
When I put it in gear it does nothing, the small "shaft" just turns slowly so there's no reaction to gear selection even though it slips easily from N-1 and N-2 gear.
Do you think there's any major damage or what could have gone wrong if withe the nut out and the sprocket not secure?
Earlier the morning my dash light wouldn't turn on as well as my headlights. Hi beam still goes on when I flash....and my horn is also dead?
