2003 Cruiser doesn’t move forward, grinding noise.
I have a 2003 Classic Cruiser with 23,000 miles. I thought well maintained. The other day I was aggressively going up a hill and when I went to shift up to, I believe 3rd gear, when I left the clutch out I thought I missed a gear. Tried the shift again and again. Nothing but a grinding like noise. There was no bang or any other noise. Nothing out of the ordinary. No tell tail symptoms leading up to this. No gear will make it go when I start to let the clutch out it will start to move a little then something starts grinding. I was wondering if there are any common problems like this on these bikes. I would like to fix it because I always took care of it and I’m sure the engine is otherwise in good condition. (of course I don’t know absolutely but) I do all my own repairs alterations etc. but I don’t think I am comfortable splitting the case. Hopefully you can point me in the right direction.
