Please tell me more.

I just picked up a brand new 2016 Monster R with 7 miles.

Rode it for one day and the shifter locked up, leaving me unable to shift up or down.

Thoughts?

Wow that sucks. I only have about 1100 miles on mine now it seems to be getting better. I would take it back to the dealer. Let us know how you make out.

Depends on who you talk to, some say the usual faulty slave cylinder problem.

Some say the hose just gets overheated due to the way it's routed.

Some say the master cylinders are bad.

And then some don't have any issue whatsoever with it.


Given all that, a complete lockup doesn't sound like a clutch issue.

Is this problem specific to Monster 1200's, or all Monsters in general?

More importantly, what is the fix, if any?

Thanks

For a transmission lockup? I may be corrected, but yours is the first I've heard about. For the stuff Sonic mentions, it's been replace the slave cylinder for the most part (many done under warranty) and replace the master (much less common). I don't know of anyone who has posted that just re-routing the clutch line has resolved clutch related shift issues.

The bike is presently at the Dealer for the transmission lockup.

I'm more concerned about getting it back, only to be faced with an endless stream of heat related clutch issues.

When you say that some people replace the master cylinder, are you referring to the small, plastic clutch fluid reservoir (I cant see how that simple device could be prone to any failure), or are you referring to a different part?

Thanks

That's just the reservoir. The mechanism is the assembly that the lever mounts to.

i've had my 2017 monster r for just a week with about 250 miles and love the transmission. smooth, short throw shifting and hitting neutral is good from first. i had an xdiavel s and the monster's transmission seems superior in smoothness and accuracy. so far, so good. hope they fix your locked up trans quickly and not have to replace it. good luck.

Trans/shifting issue turned out to be nothing more than some loose bolts. Bike shifts smoothly and accurately, no complaints.

Thanks
