    So I started out this morning and made it about 3 blocks and something broke in the transmission. It sounds like a rod knocking. Never made a sound before. Just a Big Bang. Rode it back home easy.
    Any thoughts ?

    History?
    Did it complain at all or have symptoms before it called it quits?

    Never made a noise before but when we got ready to leave and I put it in gear it acted like it was between gears or something and didn’t want to move. I put it in neutral and back in first and it was fine. Got to fourth gear and started to slow for a speed zone and when I downshifted to third it went BANG ! This bike only has 8000 miles on it !

    What does it sound like while idling in neutral now? What if you lean it way over side to side while idling in neutral?

    I will/would be interested in what went kaput... probably be safer to get a reworked mill from Rylan then remove - split - fix - reinstall your existing.

    This bike only has 8400 miles on it. I ride it sporty but never abused and maintenance on time. It's never done a burn out or wheelie. I rode my Magnum a lot harder and never had an issue at 35,000. Probably just a 17 and workers knew their job was ending and didn't give a ****. I'm thinking I'll just trade it for something and eat the loss.

    I went out and started it up and made no noise at all as long as the clutch is pulled in. When I let the clutch out it sound like someone inside the trans with a hammer no matter how much I lean it either way.

    That it's not making a chattering noise when you lean the bike over a bit at idle is excellent news. As others have suggested, it could be a relatively simple fix.

    I may not have stated it clearly but it does chatter when I lean it either direction. I’m gonna probably pull the cover and see what I can see.

    Let us know what they offer you on trade in..... Somebody on here may buy it at that price and get it back on the road.

    Ok, chattering at idle when leaned to the left sometimes means a C-Clip in the transmission has let go. “If” that’s the case, engine removal and spitting the engine cases is the only way to find and fix it. That $1,00 C-Clip costs thousands to R&R. If you could post a video with you straddling the bike at idle and leaning it over a bit that could confirm things somewhat.

    Rylan at The Vic Shop is one of the best with the transmission C-Clip scenario.

    “If” the C-Clip has let go, the bike is not rideable nor trade-in material. Again, if, the engine has to come out and be torn apart, reinstalling some of the stock 106”’ pieces is often replaced with big bore kits, cams etc etc.
