does the tranny stay in second or does it go into neutral?
had the same sort of problem end up being the roll pin in the top of the tranny where the shifter forks are

stays in gear.. dropped the tranny and its a mess.. 3rd gear is blown to pieces clutch is melted some other thing in the tranny is cracked in half.. my buddys is an apprentice 3rd year and hes never seen a tranny that messed up so basically im lookin at a new one.. apparently mud and trannys dont like each other too much
