Hmmm, my sons bike was doing the same thing, it was even locking up the wheel when it was rolled backwards. I corrected the problem by changing the chain and sprokets.

I would think that if both sprokets are new (or near new) and the chain is new you should not have a prob. Perhaps it is something internal? Is there any play in the front sproket? Can you wiggle it side to side?

Follow the master link to the rear chain guide and see if it makes the noise when it goes through the guide. the o-ring chain is slightly wider than a regular chain and the master link can bind in the guide a little bit. and as for the wheel locking up when you spin it backwards the chain can travel up the guide and bind therefore lock the rear wheel up. My yz did this after I put my d.i.d x-ring chain on but lessened after use.so if this is your problem it is nothing to worry about.

Oh, and make sure that it is fully into neutral

I hope this helps

Missing an O-ring chain spacer

Deano,
There is a spacer kit for the sprockets when you add an O or an X ring chain. Check the various on-line stores or Renthal's website maybe. I have seen a few technical articles on this kit. The wider chain hits the case where a non O-Ring chain would not. Check the cases around the counter sprocket to see if there is a mark on the case where a pin is hitting it.

You can't move the front sprocket, there's no to play in it, It's stiff.

I think the problem is the front sprocket shaft.
When my chain broke, and flew off i think it caused some damage to the shaft what the sprocket's attached to.

O'K, I took my bike into the mechanics.
Turns out it was 2 gears that broke in my bike, and apparently that's what caused the chain to snap.
Also one of the piston rings was broke and the piston was ready to go, So...

I need a piston kit, 2 new gears, valves checked/adjusted, gaskets, plus labour, oils, coolent Ect...

Total= 360 WHHHHHHHHHHHY...

These YZF's are supposed to be reliable J/k

Well now you know

Deano,
at least you know the problem, but those are serious problems. Is the cylinder okay from the ring failures? I hope the quote for the repairs is inclusive and you do get your scoot back. I know the exchange rate for the pound and that is pretty good for that much damage.

Man I bet your gutted!

You made a good move going to your mechanic. When i read your first post of this thread I thought it was something simple, not nothing to do with your gears

Man just think of the damage that ring could of done if you hadn`t had it checked out. Good move

I have asked the mechanic to check and fix everything/anything that's broken or needs replacing.
He is very cheap, (MTR Motocross) he's got a workshop beside his house and he does all his work himself, well most of it anyway.

It is going to cost me 300 now because i'm taking the oils, filters, coolent and gaskets up to him tomorrow. It'll save me 60.

Yea, I know. It could have done some serious damage to my motor.
I'm just glad it's in and being fixed

I should have it back within 2 weeks as some of the parts (gears) are on backorder.

A little clicking noise I thought was normal. I thought it was just the chain going around the little gear.

Good to hear that news

Deano,
I am amazed that you caught the damage in time. Your are pretty lucky to get a good person to work on your scoot for you. Best of luck and keep us posted on how things turn out. I envy you English riders and your tracks and the club system there.

Bill

readme Got my bike back... Woohoooo!!!

I got my bike back today. The total price was 355
5 less than the mechanic predicted

I'm going to a track tomorrow to break-in that new piston and gears. Can't wait


Any of you guys heard of an MX track called Apex in the U.K?
That's where I'm goin' tomorrow.
