Default 2008 Yamaha YDRA won't move

Good afternoon,

I'm trying to help out my parents with their 2008 Yamaha YDRA. They've owned it for a few years now with zero issues. The other day they were out riding and the cart stopped moving. I don't know a lot about carts but at first glance it appeared the belt was just loose. I figured it couldn't hurt to get a new belt and see what happens. I pulled the old belt off and attempted to see the part number (see picture below). The closest match I got was for "J55-G6241-01". The newest version was "J55-G6241-03-00" which is what I ordered from Yamaha. Well I threw the new belt on and same issue. It won't move in forward or reverse. I took a short video and put it on YouTube and posted it HERE. The rear pulley (transmission?) turns no problem which is how I got the belt on and off. Please let me know your thoughts. I'm pretty handy and can probably fix most things unless it requires a tear down of something, then I would leave it to a professional.

Your engine is spinning but not running.

Check spark, fuel, and squish. One of the 3 is missing.

I guess it could be worse.

1. If your cart just quit running and coasted to a stop, and it had gas, where would you start?

2. I can probably figure out the spark test and fuel to engine testing, but I’ve never heard of “squish”. Is that like compression?

Yes, compression.

Most likely fuel or spark but if valve adjustments were not kept up with it could have dropped a rocker arm if they got too loose. Would just need to put it back and set valve lash
