She's a 2002 with a ton of hard miles (about 15k) but she get's fresh oil every ride. So, I'm shooting across the dry lake bed heading into Ludlow after about a 300 mile run coming back from Dumont dunes (no dune riding) when she loses about half the torque I know and love so much. Yes, she was pinned but not constantly, anyways I decide to pull over and check and then the rear tire locks up at about 20 MPH. I'm in freakin shock as I have never done this in my 34 years of riding/racing. I decide to try and kick her over and low and behold I can, but it feels like I'm trying to kick over a XR 1200R if there was such a beast. It won't light but it keeps belching out a big ole, whappp! So has this happend to any of you guy's? Since I can kick her over, I can only assume it may be a ring??? I have to bust her open, but I thought I might ask here first. Thanks.
