2000 C5 gearbox seized!
Hi guys, I'm new to this forum. I've only had my thumper a few weeks. Was loving it until I was left at the side of the road last night!
I had done a hundred miles or so during the day and on the way home the engine started killing itself as if the cut off switch was faulty. After a few miles of intermittent miss firing the shifter stopped selecting 4-5th grear. I thought it was just a bent fork and carried on riding at reduced speed in third to limp it home. A further few miles and without warning the back wheel locked up completely. I clutched in and it didn't release the wheel. After coming to a reasonably controlled stop I tried starting her up and the engine runs (clutch in) but the back wheel is completely locked. The chain is fine, correct tension. So it's a gearbox issue. Has anyone encountered a similar problem.
