    Does the gear lever feel normal? Does it 'sound' like it selects a gear (ie the usual neutral to 1st gear crunch/clunk)?

Hi! Brake issue should clear with use however as it is a floating caliper you may want to strip it and cleaning out any **** from behind the pads, alternativly and being carefull use a quality rubber mallet and tap the outside of the caliper a few times apply the brake and do it again until the resistance is lost when pushing the bike forward and applying then releasing the front brake.
Sounds like clutch problem regarding No gears, if it has a duplex or even triplex chain these can break. If direct drive then clutch centre may have detatched leaving plates in limbo. if the plates were stuck together you would get gears. Without engine running push into any gear rock bike forward and backward if engine turns then keep clutch lever in and keep rocking this may free em off if not take cluctch cover off and release them.
Hope this helPS! Good luck!

What causes a bike to be hard to pedel?

Many things. Usually too high a gear. The smaller the cog at the rear wheel the harder it is to get going, but when you do, it is the fastest speed. Move to the largest cog and pedalling will be very easy and is great for going up hills.

Apart from that

Binding brakes, spin the wheels and see how it feels.

Binding pedals, spin them by hand.

Binding centre crank, remove the chain and turn the pedals and crank.

How do I fixed if my car hand brake stuck 2001 toyota coralla manual

There are several things that can make a hand brake stick on. It possible the cable attached to the leaver has come off it guide. There is a cable running from each rear wheel to the handbrake leaver , a inner cable running through a outer housing , chick that the inner cable is free to move back and forward . if all the cables are free to slide adjust the rear brakes and hand brake as instructions . Slacken off the hand brake cable adjustment. Jack up the rear wheals and adjust the brake shoes till the brakes lock, then back off till the wheels are free to turn. Then pull the hand brake leaver on two clicks and adjust the hand brake cable till the rear wheels just start to bind, release the hand brake leaver and check the wheels are free to turn.

Very possibly a slightly binding break caused by grit or by a dry sticky hand break cable or sticky hand brake leaver

My 01 yz125,with a Athena big bore kit- i just rebuilt the top end, took it easy with it for the 2 1/2 hrs i rode it...then i went roll up along side my freind and when i pulled the clutch the bike still...

Raise the back wheel with a stand and see if it starts and wheel spins. With it still on stand kick down thru gears and see if you really are in neutral. Pull in clutch and try to brake back wheel. To me it sounds like a gearbox issue if you really are in neutral (expensive) but could also be a clutch cable (cheap).

After switching from 4x4 LOW back to AWD, the transmission stayed in 4x4LOW.

This happens now and again on 4X4's. You must not continue to operate it on normal "dry" surfaces until you disengage these hubs. Permanent damage will result. First thing to do is make sure you are on wet, loose gravel, sand, dirt, etc. Switch transfer case back to 4Low. With steering straight move a little forward and without hitting the brake slip in neutral allowing truck to come to rest by itself. Switch Transfer case to next position, I assume 4low. Place in drive and drive forward and backward until you feel it come out of 4 low. You don't have to drive it crazy back and forth, just 5MPH normal back and forth maybe 20 feet forward and 20 feet backward. It's good to allow the truck to stop by itself allowing the hubs to spin freely then placing in reverse doing the same. Apply brake, repeat until unlocked. You may find that if it is not unlocking, try to push lever back into 4low, power on, the release accelerator, switch to 4high all the while it is drifting and gently power on again. If you drive on solid surfaces ignoring the driveline, you will bind the axles and destroy some element of your drive line...The weakest points first. Hope this help and do not forget to rate this high if it helped you.

Hello all, I have a 2001 Chevy Suburban 5.3L with 133,000 miles on it. It starts up fine, I put it in drive, it doesn't move, put it in reverse, it backs up, put it back in drive and away we go. The rest...

trannsmission solienoids may be sticking, try some tranx, you can get at the parts store. this stuff is great. it might take a day or two but it works. for the other truck, did you have the front brakes checked, they can bind up, when you back up it frees them up.also, but not probable for 2001 check the brake hoses, they can collapse from the inside, not letting your brakes release all the way good luck

Feels like 4th gear slipping

Sounds like the clutch plates may need replacing..
To test for a worn clutch: Release the clutch from a stop in 2nd gear as if starting out in first. With a good clutch the engine will die. If the clutch is worn, the bike will move forward and then lug as the clutch engages. This can be done at home. Follow directions in the shop manual. An air impact wrench is helpful for removing the clutch basket nut,

Good luck

they can be a bit touchy on gears start the bike in first holding the clutch down so that you dont jolt forward lol and try and put it in nutaral but only move the gear leaver a slight bit upwards if no luck then put it into second and try the other way by putting it down only slightly. if nothing then you could do what i had to do and ajust the gear leaver nut by taking the leaver of and moving it anti clockwise a few notches and make sure it gose back on the teeth or you risk weering them down give that a shot. if nothing let me know
