I had my hip replaced and haven’t had the bike in gear for 9 months. Got on it today, felt good, started and tried to go for first and the engine locked. Tried rocking with the clutch in engine off. Any thoughts?
Blip it three times, hard. Blip it hard, let it come back to idle speed. Again, and again. That should break the plates free. They are simply stuck together with oil. After the three hard blips, you should be able to put it in first with no issues.
