Hey guys, never used a forum before, so not sure how to post yet. Anyways, I just bought an 881, driving it to the farm it did great, 28 miles without any trouble except it never got into 10th gear. Then, 300 yards before the gate on a pave it finally went into 10th nd abruptly died, skidded at the end and now won't start, go into neutral, and when trying to pull it, R/H rear wheel wants to turn in reverse, opposite the L/H wheel!? I've got the 3 set manual ordered, assume the S-O-S cable let-go, safety featute shut fuel off, and rear end pin sheared. Of course I have no clue. Any ideas or experience with this sort of scenario? I'd appreciate any input, especially if there's anyway to get her into a neutral condition so I can tow her home without damaging her any more...
