Exactly, busted center pin. Make sure the Ubolts are nice and tight once you replace the center pin and you shoudl be good to go.

ok maybe I should speak more slowly........under normal conditions what would cause the center pin to snap like that. I don't dog it and only rode trails about three times.

Okay, a loose or damaged set of Ubolts will allow for shift and shear the head off the pin.

Regular stop and go starts with even a slightly loose set of Ubolts will allow shift and that will shear the head of the pin off.

Age and rust will also weaken the center pin and it will snap.

Slow enough for ya?
