Got a sick Wing. Engine runs great, put it in gear, begin releasing the clutch and all it does is clunk clunk clunk... hammers inside the tranny. I think. I took the right side cover off and did the same while on centerstand and will turn back wheel but not if you throttle up. I have some thoughts..some gear is not meshing completely. I checked the reverse controls and seem to be in spec. Im hoping its not too costly..but I have a sick feeling. Any clues or ideas? thank you in advance for you alls help. lonnie

:wtf:

Disconnect the drive shaft, and repeat your test... I suspect that the drive shaft is stripped, a common problem.

Remove the rear wheel and check the splines there.
If they're good remove the final drive and drive shaft to check those splines. You can do it, it's not rocket science.

Pull the rear wheel, rear drive, driveshaft, then u-joint at the rear case, then do the engine test.

Inspect all the splines. Watch for missing splines and worn thin splines.
