97 1400 intruder. I have not had any issues with the transmission or clutch but while cruising about 60 mph I heard a grinding noise and it just started coasting. Now, when I put it in any gear it wont move, just makes that grinding noise. I'm not much of a mechanic but I thought it may be the clutch. am I right?

Are these shaft drive....if so check the rear drive gear....probably stripped and a whole lot easier than a transmission problem.

Aussie Steve and Easy Rider were right about the problem for my bike. The shaft drive rusted and teeth were ground down. Check and grease at every tire change (per manual, but not listed as a maintenance item🙄)!
