Default Re: Rear wheel locks when disengaging clutch, no engine start is this normal?

If it isn't hydro locked then try going faster and try bouncing your weight down on the pedals right as you pop the clutch. This will give you more traction on your rear tire. Are you really light? I weigh 165 and don't have to bounce down but if you are like 120 or something maybe that is why you are having a little problem. My first check would be what bike guy joe said to remove the spark plug and try. Not only will this see if it is hydrolocked but will reveal if there is another problem with the drive train. If it goes real easy with nothing like the chain or sprocket locking up then put the spark plug back in and try the bouncing your weight thing.
