Im Riding my wr400 in 5th gear along with my buddy and my back wheel just totally locks up and the bike turns off and nearly throws my ass down....Now My question is how do i figure out if this is a compression problem or what?? The bike has started a few times since but ultimately does the same thing....just locks up and turns off. When cranking the bike at first sometimes it would just loosen up but now the problem has gotten worse until I can barely crank it at all.....Wondering if anyone out there could maybe suggest probible causes for this and maybe a quick fix tip....Would appreciate any replies...Thanx!

sounds to me a bearing is locking up... if so, I belive its time for a rebuild...
