    Rear wheel locked in neutral

    Hi

    I’m still loving my Crossrunner, but something odd happened today.
    I pulled up at home after my commute. Reversed into the spot where I park and put her in neutral and used the kill switch to turn off the engine. ( I normally use the key )
    Then put it on the centre stand.
    When I went to lock it up for the night, the back wheel was locked solid. Wouldn’t turn at all.
    Turned on the key again. Definitely in neutral. Pulled clutch in, still a locked rear wheel.
    The only way I could get it to move, was to start it and put it into first and let the clutch out. Back to neutral and all normal again, free spinning wheel.
    Any ideas? What did I do wrong?

    Only thing I can think of is that the neutral light lied and the bike was still in gear.

    Never heard of it happening though.

    There wasn’t the slightest movement though. Normally you’d have a tiny bit of play in the drive train, and when I pulled in the clutch it should have spun.
    In 30 years of motorcycling this was a first for me. Very odd

    Maybe a sticky brakepad?

    Tried the rear brake too. Seemed fine. Disc wasn’t hot either. I’m baffled.

     After a wet ride a brakepad can occasionaly rust on the disc, had that several times, but it is quiet easy to break the bond between pad and disc by hand. By shoving the bike by hand I mean.

    I can see that might happen, but I’d just come home from my commute.

    The only thing I can think of is the ABS at the back got in a muddle and the bit that goes into the slotted ABS plate got stuck in the out position??

    I thought the ABS used a light/laser shining through the gaps???

    Very possibly it does. That would make sense. It’s my first ABS bike, so I presumed it was mechanical.
