The chain is probably jammed behind the clutch arm cover. Often happens when the chain comes off. Just remove the cover for the clutch arm.

I'll double check that's happened to me once before when my chain was loose all I did was take the back tire off disconnect the chain from the back wheel and put the new wheel on with the chain and then try to start it and that's what happened it jerked me off the bike. Did not take the cover off the check for that because I didn't think the chain jammed up I will check that when I get home.I'm praying that's this you have not I'll get back on here and find out what else it could be thank you

I was just thinking it can't be that cuz when I disengage the clutch the bike moves so that means the back tire is moving so that means the chain is moving around my sprocket.if it was jammed up. I wouldn't be able to move the bike. To

You can try removine the clutch gearing cover, and spark plug to remove pressure, then, whith clutch out, spin the wheel and watch the gears; ensure both are turning. If its not the chain doubled up, a gear locked and not turning could be the issue. With the plug removed, it should spin pretty easily.

If the wheel is not locked up with clutch pulled in then it can't be chain issue because with chain locked in the rear wheel is locked all the time and not related to pulling and releasing clutch.

Hi joel...Sorry to hear your having problems again.

You mentioned changing a flat tire amd putting both chains back on again of course...please follow the instructions previously suggested from others first and see if this can be narrowed done some...Just sounds very strange that this happens only after changing a back tire, thats why its important to look carefully at everything involving both chains as well as making sure that rear tire is realigned properly with no damage to it or related items due to the flat...DAMIEN
