WR 450 seized Tranny? What else could it be?

6 posts in this topic

So I was riding with my uncle today and his bike stopped running and stopped like he slammed on his brakes?

Is it anything for sure or possibly a few things? How much do you think it will cost?

Any helps appreciated.

I can already tell you that you need to add in a bunch more details.

What he was doing, how fast, gear he was in, how were the fluids, work done previously to it, etc...

I was abusing mine (2006 w/AIS removed) @ El Mirage Dry Lake Bed, pegged to 94 mph.... Then my tranny blew up! LOCKED up at speed! Left a few hundred feet of skidmark on the lake bed !!! $1400.00 later and I am back on the road again.

I'm assuming you can't shift gears any more. If you pull in the clutch, can you at least turn the engine? If the engine won't turn, can you spin the rear wheel with the clutch in?
