My bike is a 2004. I was riding along the other day and as I was taking off from a parking lot, the motorcycle made a loud *KACHUNK!* sound.
It didn't drive very well after that but I was able to make it down the road one block before it completely gave out. Now, whenever I simply put it in gear, I heard a grinding noise. I am thinking the transmission blew up.
I am quite the newbie when it comes to motorcycles. My question is if I have to have the transmission replaced, approximately how much might I be looking at for parts alone? I realize the labor will vary depending on where I take it but I am trying to gauge if it is even worth getting this fixed or saving that money towards a newer bike.
Thanks for your help!
