Hello
I got a 660 raptor second hand that has been sitting for 5 years... got all the breaks and throttle freed up The starter clutch is gone so I attempted to bump start it to see if it would go. But when I put it in gear going down hill and slip the clutch the back wheels lock up is that a clutch issue or is the engine seized ?
thanks Owen

Put it on neutral and find a ratchet with a ⅞ socket on the stator cover remove the center cap on the stator cover,take the spark plug off and with the ratchet go counterclockwise it should go kinda a little bit hard,compression tigh wise I mean.... if its locked up the ratchet won't move at all....maybe some else will chime in soon.... good luck

More than likely Yes!!!! Raptor's are notorious for braking the 2nd gear,as a matter of fact I'm going through the process right now of splitting cases and putting in a decent set of used cases I bought on Ebay,and a 2002 660r transmission the whole thing,because my transmission is making a crazy noise on 2nd gear....it runs but once I hit second gear its noise time.... for your situation also check your oneway bearing and starter clutch make sure they're still good....keep trying and reach out to others that know waaaay more than I do.... I know a little bit but some people here in this forum are the best of the best..... You're in the right place to ask questions!!!!!

What gear are you in trying to bump start? Pavement or dirt?

You can't just slip the clutch. Get rolling about 10MPH in high gear, standing on the pegs, with the clutch held in, key and gas on. Quickly let the clutch lever go, some throttle, and at the same time, slam your butt down on the seat. You may have to do it a few times to get the motor turning. Be ready to back off the throttle when it starts and pull the clutch in.

Roll starting an engine that was just turned off can be a hassle sometimes(traction).
But on a cold engine, lol, good luck, as it usually takes a few try's.
