Bike: 2002 R6

Riding down seymour when all of a sudden, the bike makes noises like the chain is dragging on the ground. Stop bike, look at chain and it's fine. I could put into gear and rev the engine and no power would go to the wheel. Bike seemed to shift through its gears fine. Coasting down, I could feel something grinding... :(

Please tell me it's a clutch issue which is easy to fix?

Sounds to me like you need to go have a closer look at it and do a little more of your own diagnosis. It could be as simple a the sprocket or sprockets not having any teeth left as the other guys said to the insides of your transmission being turned into sand sized particles or anything in between. A simple "it's making grinding sounds, tell me what's wrong" isn't something that can be answered or even hinted at with so little to go on.

What about how the shift lever feels? Take off the countershaft cover and see if the sprocket has any teeth and if the chain is jumping. If the sprockets and chain are good and adjusted then is the countershaft sprocket even trying to turn or if it just sitting there while the sounds go on?

How hard is it to just start it and LOOK???? if the chain, countershaft and sprockets are good then drop the oil into a nice clean pan and see if there are any metal treats. I sometimes wave a magnet through the oil if i suspect gear damage. 2 easy things to do then if you want our help post up the results or take it to a shop.

Man I was hoping it'd be an easy diagnosis. I guess nothing is easy. Thanks for the help guys.
Comon guy. What would your reaction be? You said it's making a funny sound and we said it was broken. Without a lot of extra details it's impossible to be more specific. That's just the nature of complex mechanical stuff.

No no.. no sarcasm in my post. It was a pretty stupid question so I deserved an asskicking.

Sorry if it sounded like an asskickin'. Didn't mean for it to come out harsh but I guess it does look that way.

THink of it as more of a lesson in diagnosing mechanical woes... :D
