  • Transmission locked up

    Hi folks I'm just looking for bit of advice on a friend's xv 1600 2001 model. While riding his rear end locked up solid and bike skidded to a halt. The bike will not move even in neutral or with clutch pulled in but will start and idle putting it in gear and easing the clutch out it will get to the point of engagement and bike will remain stuck solid without rear wheel turning and die he thought bearings but I removed the belt and wheel spun freely so he's not that lucky for it to be collapsed bearings. I'm assuming it is a primary and secondary issue within the gears before I remove the engine for tear down to have a look I'm wondering if anybody has any ideas as I've never split one of these xv1600 engines from what I can tell there easy enough to work on once the engines out but thought you'd folks who own these may have some insight and he also checked if the transmission recall was done and Yamaha said it had been in for the recall already.

    Do you have an inspection camera? Might be something to poke into the transfer case and see if the chain broke and is bound up. Pull the large plug on the right side to check.

        They had a recall on the trans for a circlip that when it messed up that is exactly what happens. Have the dealer check the vin to see if the recall has been done if not Yamaha should pay for the repair.

            If it has truly been done then I would start at the rear wheel and work forward. Remove the belt and make sure the wheel spins free, if it does then remove the cover on the transfer case to make sure nothing in there locked up, if that is good then you are gonna have to go into the trans.

              Belts been removed already so we could move the bike freely as rear wheel would not turn with belt attached so I know rear end is fine so will move to the transfer case and double check before pulling the motor for strip down
