MadCity is reading this now saying WTF is this?
Throwout bearing failure

I don't usually post in technical threads largely because I don't wrench my own bikes, but if I've experienced a problem that might help others with a similar problem I make an exception. After getting my bike "fixed" last week (to adjust the clutch because it was getting to the point that I nearly couldn't disengage it, and the bike would start to pull the instant I began to release the clutch), it started doing the same damn thing in the last couple of days. Yesterday I made an appointment to have the dealer fix it right this time, and I rode the bike to the dealer. The problem had now gotten so bad that I couldn't disengage the clutch all the way. I was stuck at a couple of long red lights, couldn't find neutral and had to hold the bike in place with the front brake. On a couple of occasions, that then killed the engine because the bike wanted to move and neutral was nowhere to be found. It wasn't so bad once I got on the freeway headed to the dealer, because then I could keep it in the same gear most of the way. But shifting was hard, too. By the time I got to the dealer the bike was really pulling hard with the clutch pulled all the way in. It was kind of scary. Turns out I need a new throwout bearing, and they had to keep my bike until they can order the part. But they gave me a loaner to use until Friday, so that's cool. Glad that one ride is over, though. I offer this as a heads-up for anyone experiencing similar symptoms.
