2008 F650gs motor stuck
Me and a couple of friends took a daytrip on saturday.
My friend had a wobble in some soft gravel and ended up on the ground. When the bike hit the ground the throttle got buried in the sand and was full open. My friend jumped up and ran to the bike to turn it off. This took him about 5 seconds.
We helped him raise the bike and we took care of the damage as best we could. Then he sat on the bike put on his helmet and when he pressed the start button nothing happened except for a little click in the starter.
The motor was stuck.
We tried putting the bike in top gear and turn the rear wheel but no the motor would not move.
We had to ring his son and have him pick up the bike with a trailer.
On the way back my other friend had a flat front tire on his KTM 990 so we put that bike on the trailer as well but that is another story.
When he got back home with his BMW he took out the spark plugs and tried to turn the motor but it is firmly stuck.
My question is this: Has anyone had a similar experience with his BMW? or do you know what might be wrong?
This could be a very expensive fix. There is not a BMW motorcycle dealer here in Iceland
