So, I haven't used my 2001 K1200LT in a few months.
Yesterday, I went to take it out for a spin, and found that the drive train was locked up.
Bike is in Neutral and I can't seem to shift up or down.
Tried rocking the bike forward and back with clutch in and out.
Tired hitting the starter, but no noise whatsoever.
Rear wheel moves a bit, so it doesn't seem to be a frozen rotor.
Bike was on a battery tender the whole time, and appears to have plenty of juice.

Anyone have any thoughts before I go start whacking on things with a rubber mallet?

Thanks!

Just figured it out!

A few weeks ago a nephew had been sitting on it making vroom vroom noises.
(supervised, of course)

He apparently kicked the reverse lever halfway.
I switched it back, and everything is fine!

I only feel a little stupid :eek:, but mostly relieved that something major didn't lock up and require some major work.
Luckily, as I was looking thru this site, I saw a thread about the reverse gear which got me thinking.

Thanks again everyone!
