Engine locked or starter locked up
Another mid life crisis.
828 miles on an '07. Two PO's. Added good battery. Starts, warms, and sounds like clunky bucket of bolts in transmission in 3rd gear . Died after 200 yards, won't start. Battery in Truckee charger for 2 days due to downpour. Operation: Day 2. Starts, warms with cleaner idle. Ride another 200 yards, locks back wheel. Coast home. Day 3. Locked. I surmise bolts on the back of the flywheel loosened up. Do I need to drain the oil or would there be a minimal amount be behind the flywheel cover for this inspection? I have blue locktite, flywheel puller, battery maintenance know-how. There will be carb rebuild, filters, T4 oil, and coolant replacement with electrical inspections.
Thank you for addressing the simplistic question. I'll add another request, models of mid priced, no maintenance, sealed battery referral.
Let there be wind to your back
