Just picked up a 2015 FT and I'm pumped! However, today I tried rolling my bike backwards and it feels like something is locked up. I can roll for a foot or two and then stops. Not sure if this is some sort of security feature that I can't figure out. It's only got 3700 kms and I rode it around town a few days ago with no issues. This is my first bike and it may be a very simple fix but all advice is much appreciated!

Thanks

I'd check to see if its the brakes. They drag a bit when rolling around. The next thing I'd check is the chain. If the drive sprocket retainer is worn out the chain can drag against the swing arm: there will be scuff marks.

Update: When I was taking my batter cover off the bolt fell into the depths and it apparently perfectly lodged itself between chain links which was causing the problem!
