    It's alive!

    The Husky locked up on me last weekend. I was just putting along and I hear a pop and then my bike stops running. Hit the start button and just a single thud. OK, pull the kick starter out and try to kick it over....nothing, it won't budge. :huh

    Put her in neutral and I'm lucky enough that I'm able to let gravity get me down to the power-line road. My buddies take off to get a truck and I took a nice nap for about an hour and a half. I had nightmares of $1500 repair bills :cryfollowed by dreams of a 2013 350exc :happay which were followed immediately by nightmares of telling my wife I'll need to drop 9K on a new scooter. :eek1

    This past Saturday was the autopsy. Pulled the clutch cover and all looks good. Pulled the clutch and basket and all looks good but still locked up. Pull the sprag clutch gear and it seem OK and looks good. With the sprag gear off everything freed up. Put the sprag back on and everything everything still working properly. Re-assemble and the bike fires right up.:clap

    So now the big mind fuck is what the hell was wrong? Is it good to go? Will it happen again? Will I be by myself in the bottom of a canyon as the sun sets when it locks up again? :(:

    Thoughts?
