    Has anyone here had any experience or heard of anyone having
    an 07 model 6-speed locking up at any speed or gear?

    I actually know of a 07 FLHTCU that had trans lock-up about 22 miles from the dealership. NO OIL IN THE TRANS!! :devil

    That'll do it for sure:D

    I've heard of a few that had no gear lube after a dealer service too and the engine oil was over full, hmmmmmm.
    Parts washing kid strikes again :no

    Just a word to check things out after a service, they do make mistakes :devil

    I know a guy who's drain plug fell off riding home from the HD stealer afters a service. His wife behind him noticed it and stopped him. Since, I do my jumpmaster pre flight checks!!:s

    My rear wheel locked up immediately after downshifting and
    going into a corner. It was like shifting down one gear releasing the clutch and instead of the usual engine speed reduction from the downshift, the rear wheel locked and nothing I could do to
    maintain control of the bike.

    Sure would appreciate any info from y'all on similar problems.

    Thanks
