Raptor 80 rear end issue

So about a month ago we put my nephews Raptor 80 in the shed after a ride and it was fine. Rolled right in and backed into its spot.

Yesterday we went to roll it out and go for a short ride and the rear tires were locked up. The brakes dont seem frozen and the rear dif has plenty of fluid.

Any ideas what this might be?

Haha yeah man, its not in neutral. Make sure to turn the key on and the little green light is lite up. ITS STILL IN GEAR! That was one of the easier problems to fix

nope, forgot to mention that part. it is in nuetral. at least it shows that it is. besides, it ROLLED into place perfect and has not been touched since.

But thanks for the insight i would never have thought of that on my own :

Haha ok i was gunna say :\ gotta be pretty dumb to not check that hahaha... Umm i mean check all the obvious stuff... gears, parking break, the break may have locked some how check that out. Other than that its gunna be some sort of gear problem

Just remembered something bout my 80... the gears sometimes fuck up and the light comes on for no reason. Assuming your a larger than a 14 year old, sit on it and rock around and push back and forth while trying to shift, that may help?

oh, one more thing. i lifet it in the air put it in gear and gave it a bit of gas. it didnt move at all. the rear is totaly stuck. breaks seem to move like normal so im not sure. just didnt know if maybe someone had a similar issue. it seemed weird that it was fine a month ago and now its not.

Waaaaaaiittttt ... When you lifted the back and gassed it, did it sound normal? Cause if it did then its just a gearing problem which is actually probably worse than anything else :\

yeah, it sounded normal. i was thinking gear or shaft problem. i sure hope not. but thats why im asking around. i dont wanna yank it all apart just yet. besides, he will be on the blaster in the spring anyway. but i want it fixed so my daughter can enjoy it someday.

Hmmm well it sounds like a gearing problem but it would also be very strange to be one because it was just sitting... i mean you could try taking apart the brake assembly, cleaning, and putting back... Cause i know what you mean about not wanting to rip the tranny apart just to find out that it was a different problem haha. Well i think iv put my knowledge into this, hopefully someone else (preferably who has/had this problem) will chip in. Good luck!

I know these bikes are semi-auto, but could it be the automatic clutch?

Sorry for the solicitation interruption, but just in case it's a blitzed rear end...I'm parting out a Raptor 80 and the rear housing and gears are fine.
