I been having clutch troubles. The clutch would not fully disengage when i pull the clutch lever in (yes its adjusted). the pressure plate was grinding the clutch cover.

Well just today i was trying to start it. After about 5 kicks i heard tick or clonk every time i kicked it down. Well i kicked about 5 more times and the n all of a sudden it locked up.

The kicker is at straight up possession. When in gear with clutch pulled in the tires will not budge BUT if i put it in neutral it will role like normal.

Now whats going on. Could it be my basket?

what year ?
might be the kickstarter return stop, Yammi's are notorious for breaking these on earlier 426/450's
