So I just bought an 07 roadglide with 5000 miles on it. I got off the freeway yesterday after riding for an hour and heard a screeching noise coming from the primary. Then a few lights up the bike stopped and would not move. The engine still runs and went to out it in gear and the back tire tried to move but wouldn't. I could roll it back wards but not forward. I put it in Neutral and the same thing. I got to the destination it did it again. I could not get it in the garage. Took the primary off and everything looks good. I have no clue now. Thanks.

Sorry to hear of the bad mojo with your bike. Since no one has responded, I'll take a wild guess. Could it be a problem with your transmission? Just a thought, seeing how you inspected the primary and found it to be well. -Good luck.:D

That's a tough one since you say you put in neutral and it won't move forward.

Have you checked the clutch pack?

Have you tried spinning the rear wheel while it's lifted? (if you have a lift) if you do this be sure to remove the plugs so you aren't trying to spin against the compression in the heads.



Found this in another thread

Problem Solved:: Just talked to Duane at D&D Cycles, San Marcos, CA He found the problem. A bracket from exhaust mounting located directly above the belt drive pulley came loose and fell into the opening in the transmission housing.The opening is on the top of the trans case right behind the where the shift linkage is located, and leaves the pulley and part of the belt exposed on the top. The bracket was wedged between the pully teeth and the shift linkage. It would allow the bike to roll backwards and make a clicking noise,and when I tried to roll forward it would bind up between the pulley teethe and the shift linkage arm.
You might want to check the brackets to see if tight, Iknow I will. We checked an'07 and it does not have the opening in the trans case, butmy '04 and an '02 both had the opening.

I need some helpful information.
I have 2004 RK Police with 31000 on the clock.
Rode about 90 miles yesterday and was a great ride. Stopped for about 5 minutes and went to re-start bike. The motor will start and run great. I start it in neutral with clutch in. When shifted to first and clutch released it will not go forward. It stalls. It will not roll forward in any gear. With motor off and clutch in or out it will not roll forward. It will only roll backwards, and it makes a small clicking noise coming from the derby cover,when rolling backwards.
It is on the trailer right now and will go to shop Monday am. I will keep you posted as to what they find.
What do you think is the problem?
I had just finished 90 mile ride with not a hint of a problem or unusual sound.
Is it the clutch - althought it seems to function normally.
Is it the trany -
Something is keeping it from moving in forward direction.
Any ideas much appreciated.

Thanks guys for the help. Yea it's a total bummer since I on have had the bike for a few weeks. I was talking to my buddy and think maybe one of the dogs broke. What do you guys think about that??

Bummer! Like mentioned check for obstructions wedge in between the belt and the front pulley. If that isn't the problem than the trans would be the next place to look.
I would suggest having it looked at.

Thanks everybody for all the help. I ended up sheering off all the bolts holding the sprocket onto the wheel and one of the bolts was holding it up on the swing arm. Still a total bummer. Ended up costing me wheels, sprocket and bolts.
