Locked transmission at 92mph. Underwear ruined.

How the day started.



How the day ended.



Tim explains how drinking Boddington's and eating grocery store wraps leads to skidmarks. The silver car ahead is about where I ground to a halt.

I did that once on an old 360 Yamaha dirtbike when it seized the piston. I didn't realize I was skidding until it started going sideways and then I pulled in the clutch and almost high sided when the wheel started spinning again.It was a fairly new knobby and had a hell of a flatspot.

Awesome fun!

Just like being kids and seeing who can make the biggest skid mark.

The bar has been set.

Whose next?

The blue one, this time....
Any Yamaha guys have insight into what may have happened?
Bike still runs , starter works so the top end is fine.
As soon as the clutch is engaged it dies.

Got oil in it?

I have only had them do this with no oil in them.

Gotta be the gearbox , I would say it's amazing or a credit to Yamaha that it didn't all try to get out through the cases !

Plug out , is there any gear that you can engage and push it forward or back ?

All of which has nothing to do with a transmission locking up.

so a handful of clutch would have saved this 500 foot skidmark and underwear issue ?

Been there, Done that. I am so glad you are OK.

Not near as hairy as yours, but the last time it happened to me was in the dirt at about 60mph and my tail bag decided to let loose and wedge between the rear tire and the swing arm. After racing 2 strokes for 100 years the natural instinct was to pull in the clutch, which in my case did no good at all.

I hope you find the problem and it is easily fixed.

And no, Tim is only 499' tall.

Marc
