Default Re: problems with my engine

That pin is supposed to be protruding from the sprocket. It is pushed inward by the cam in the clutch actuator cover. If you rear wheel locked up, that pin is not the problem. Is the chain still on? Is it the proper tension? A loose chain can bind inside the clutch actuator cover where it wraps over the drive sprocket. Is the clutch cable adjusted correctly? Possibly the cable stop, the small brass part that clamps onto the end of the clutch cable has slipped allowing the clutch to remain engaged. Check these things and get back to us.
