You're pretty much limited to a broken drive belt or clutch basket issue keeping it from engaging.

There are, of course, transmission possibilities but you would hear something very bad if something in there broke and it probably wouldn't shift.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks, P.J.
