Evening , wondering if someone could offer any ideas on another mechanical stuff up Ive made.. Decided to remove sprag and starter and have kick start only.. Took primary apart, didnt have 32mm socket for crank sprocket, so used stilsons and jammed primary and clutch with wood, (not good)..So I hear a few loud clicks like something breaking and decide to stop. Bought a 32mm socket put it on my air gun and came off easy. Took sprag and starter off, re assembled bike, sweet, HOWEVER when i engage gear and clutch and the the bike is stationary (wheel not moving) I get this horrible rubbing grinding sound. Stripped bike again, tip of gearbox mainshaft bent, replaced and got new primary chain also.Back together, all good riding...until the bike is stationary in gear with clutch engaged, i get same horrible noise.... nil noise with clutch engaged in any gear incl nuetral with back wheel spinning... as soon as i stop the back wheel in gear, bad.. I examined all of g/box and all splines in clutch etc, all seem really good and the bike was perfect before i took sprag/starter off. Stripped bike 3 times now.. All i can think off is clutch basket???.What have i done???
