    Either your ball and ramp slipped or you got something stuck in your clutch plates.

    Take your primary cover off and dissassamble the clutch pack and look for broken parts. Take a look at the primary chain shoe it's plastic and can break.

    Before you open up the primary I would unscrew the cap where the push rod is and back it off to check the ball and ramp function independent of the clutch. If OK, then you know the clutch is seized.

    Chain looks loose, might want to check that too. Post a pic of the broken bolt like Paul said, someone may be able to tell you where it came from.

    That looms like a bolt that holds the inner primary on.....wondering if a lock tab wasn't put back

    Would that be a bolt for the guide or tensioner?
