I have a 82 Honda Magna. I was riding down a hill and it just locked up on me. I skidded for about 5 feet and it wouldn’t budge. After yanking it back and forth for a while it broke free and I was able to move it a couple feet, after which it locked up again!
I was able to get it to a parking spot by violently humping the gas tank with my hips. The engine runs fine. The bike has shaft drive & drum brakes. The gears work, it just doesn’t move in neutral. I can get it move a little if you really really reef on it, but only a couple of inches. The only way to move it that I could find was a violent hip thrust to the gas tank. (I looked like a straight up crazy person because I was giving it to her.) There was no way I was just gonna leave my bike in the street and go home.
Anyway, does anybody have any experience with this, I am curious to know why it happens and most importantly I wanna know how to freakin fix it.
