    How would you budge this bike?


    Good friend of mine down south had gutters installed and didnít realize where or how much the water had saturated and went to move his bike out from under the deck.

    Itís now up to its rear fender in mud.

    He doesnít have access to the front of the rear wheel.

    I suggested a two person job, take the seat off or whatever else to get access to the frame and have one person lift while the other feathers the throttle.

    The fence location cuts out just holeshotting like a beast, and I feel bad because he is in his sixth week of chemo so Iím sure this is the last thing he has energy for.

    Any suggestions?How would you budge this bike?-b90537e3-8470-4552-b43c-f4a7fba926b7

    Is it dry or wet now? If dry, dig, if wet, lever the back wheel out with long logs etc. No motor til the seal breaks.

    I would dig out around the rear wheel and if you had a come-a-long try to pull it out that way. putting boards under it as you go bring beer and invite four five friends to help out.

    You could either get a few guys to lift it, or hire a crane

    Start it, pin it, and dump the clutch.

    Re: How would you budge this bike?

    I'd be digging out straight behind the rear tire then start removing or loosening up the material around the sides of the rear tire to prepare for reverse direction of removal.

    Open the gas tank light a match and boom insurance buys him a real bike that will never have that problem again. Simple solution problem solved.

    If it was just me I'd probably get a shovel and a winch and have at it

    Re: How would you budge this bike?

    Perhaps do some digging out, remove the seat to access the frame, and a heavy-duty cherrypicker-type engine hoist?
    Might take a few people to put it in place, or maybe roll it there over some boards.
    Hoist the rear end clear, and put a board or something under it, then lower it and hoist the front if you need to.

    Re: How would you budge this bike?

    First choice is always guys to lift it or a crane... but since neither is probably an option here then, I’d suggest digging.

    I wouldn’t throttle it at all until the rear wheel has some play

    Re: How would you budge this bike?

    IF you have an engine hoist, lift the ass and get a broad, err, board under it.

    If no hoist available, a ladder with a couple of ratcheting tie down straps would do wonders to lift it.

    Re: How would you budge this bike?

    Don't you normally use a tractor to pull another tractor out of the mud?

    In all seriousness, I hope your friend heals well and is on the road again this spring.
