i mainly use my bike on the off-road setting, but occasionally road it down the highway. it so happen that on the evening of the 27th of august i was traveling down the highway for about six miles when my motorcycles started to make a clicking noise somewhere in the engine area. i slowed from 65 mph to about 55 mph when all of a sudden my rear wheel locked skidding my bike out of control. luckily i brought the bike to a stop in the middle of the highway with no injury to myself or anyone else. i tried to shift my transmission through the gears, but was only able to get to shift to third. i managed to road my bike home in third gear. i was very curious of why my bikes transmission had seized so i checked some sites out on the internet. to my shock i was not the only person that this had happened too. on the sites that i found many of the people that had their transmissions fail said that the third or fifth gear seized to their shafts and the price to get it fixed from the dealer was anywhere from 1000 to 1500 dollars. the next day i decided that i would take the engine out of my bike, which ended up disassembling most of the bike. with the engine out i took it to my local honda dealer to get the engine case split in half so i could figure out all that had failed inside of the transmission. i am still waiting to hear back from the honda dealer of how much its going to cost, but i'm pretty sure its not going to be cheap. *nm
