My 2001 XR 650 R sat for 12 months with out a ride. I took it out this weekend after checking the oil and fluids. The bike ran OK felt like there was something wrong with the carb. I let it warm up and rode it around for 5 minutes on a flat track. Parked the bike and turned it off. Started it again 5 minutes later and the clutch wasn't disengaging.??? Took it apart and the clutch disks looked fine the basket had locked up. :) the good thing was I got the extended warranty when I bought the bike, talked to the dealer and it might be covered under warranty. So the big question has anyone else has this problem with their bike? :) I will post the out come of this on the site after the bike is fixed. :D Thanks

This is a common problem on bikes 2001 an a half and earlier and some latter that have the old clutch bushing (my 2003 had the old bushing and bad counter shaft seal).



Some get lucky and get the seized bushing off. It sounds like yours seized easy and can be pulled off or popped down and then pulled off.
