    What do you mean the gears froze up?
    Mines going ok atm, not as powerful as my old yx140. Done around 2000kms. If I do a couple wheelies it starts to jerk a bit for a while but it goes away.

    I always thought these would be same as old yx140 just with e start?
    Yx140 are super reliable and can beat of them a lot more than other engines in my experience
    What is different between them?

    I have the electric start never used it before. The bike pulled like a champ.. till like I said gears froze up .. I can't get it out of 4th gear I can drop to 3rd but lowest it will go. And u cant kick start it cause it's in gear. And can't roll it cause the gears are froze . I know it had compression I moved to looked at the flywheel and u can hear and feel the compression. And all I was going was hauling butt and it all locked up making me slide every where. Will be getting another yx but a 160 . Just can't figure out how change the gears in the 140 so might as well not try and just buy a bigger better one. If u know how to please send me links I would be greatly appreciated
