    I don't see how the engine can still be running if you are in fact in gear and the wheel is locked as you stated.
    More likely it is locked in neutral and something is broken inside.

    Aside from checking the obvious things (clutch cable and clutch rod) the only way to know for sure is to open up the crank case and see what's what inside.
    You might have a broken gear or broken shifter.

    okay. so probly right its in neutral.or something is REALLY broken.
    Okay thanks for the ideas.
    Ill open the clutch side of the case tomorrow
    yeah I figured something has to be broken in the case

    so.
    Prior to this happening.
    in the last week. Twice the bike shifted from 2nd back into first on its own when I upshifted.
    like 7k rpm 1st. Shift 2nd. It would rev for a moment then drop back into 1st.
    only had this issue with this gear change.
    *this has been happening for years. but would only happen once in a blue moon. but happened twice last week.

    Additonally.
    First gear has felt tougher to start in. I thought it was in my head... however I think this may be related.

    So...
    could stuck clutch plates be the cause of this ? or is this worse than that ?

    What gave it away. Chain has no play top or bottom now. That seemed odd. And look.... The blue death...
    Did I mention no chain gaurd ? Maybe time to invest in one ?
