Bike won't roll when in gear..
Posted October 17, 2000 - 06:07 AM
When my bike is in gear, with the clutch pulled in, I can't get it to roll. I rock it back and forth, but that rear tire stays locked. It goes in and out of gear with ease and moves freely when in neutral.
I just moved it this morning and noticed this so I haven't even experimented in solving the problem yet.

It seems I remember another guy posing the same question. When he tried the same drill with the bike warmed up he could roll it easily. The dry clutch was not slipping as it should, but a warm bike and oiled plates allowed it to roll.
Warm the beast up and try again.
Hope this is it…

I had the same problem with my WR400. When I noticed this problem we were having cold weather and the bike had not been started for two weeks I had just changed the front sprocket and that when I noticed the problem that I could not move the bike in gear , I thought it was something I done but while changing the sprocket , but it must have been due to the bike being cold and the fact that the engine had not been started for a while because when I started the bike everything was o.k .

you are correct the oil squeezes out of the clutch pack when setting for a period of time and in cold weather the pack locks up. You need to start the bike warm it up and if you clutch is adjusted correctly it should be fine. My Husabergs were also very suseptable to this.

if still struggling ref. below
winde your cluth adjustment to no slack at all while you free it off. you want those plates to be as loose as possible. keep the bike on the stand WITH THE REAR WHEEL OFF THE FLOOR-pull in the clutch then, probably with a huge clunk, kick it into gear.
