I have had a problem loading the bike on the back of my truck. It seems when I put in first gear with the engine off and pull in the clutch I can't push it up the ramp. I like the option of not putting on the break if needed when pushing it up. You know what I mean? The rear tire is locked up. Is there a cure for this or am I S.O.L.

You have some residual oil holding the clutch. Pull the clutch in before you kill the motor and it'll push fine. Once you let go of the clutch, it's over.

Bill not to be a smart ass but what di you mean it's over? If I am pushing the bike and it is first gear with the clutch in and it is free wheeling, you men once I let it out I'm screwed?

That's right......sorry I didn't explain :) once you release the clutch, there is enough residual oil to make the clutch "grab". Same if you ever try a dead engine start in hare scramble.....don't let the clutch out after killing the motor :D
