I have a older LX200GPS that I acquired from a gentleman. It's around a 2005 model year. The declination is VERY tight, like things aren't right with the bearing or something. I tried to move the tube up and down to possibly move the grease around to see if it would loosen up, but I heard a loud pop/bang sound. Then I took out the gear, clutch plate and the OTA is still stiff as can be. I took off the covers on both sides and can't seem to see anything. It's so tight you need two hands and some force to move the tube up or down in the forks. The gears, and clutches are disassembled and still won't move easily. Any suggestions on what to do? Anybody else encounter this problem?
