I just picked up a used General with only 70 hrs
First weekend out riding and something seem to have popped in the transmission
Only get grinding when put in any gear
Is there any known issues with this trans?
Appreciate any tips before I tear it out

Tell us more about how the transmission is acting. Hard to shift, the "popped" in any particular gear range? What year?

Need more info to help.

Before you tear it out....get a clear plastic storage box from a place like Office Depot, make sure it's big enough to hold 44 oz of trans fluid. Like this one.
65924

Go to the local Sherwin-Williams or other paint store and get a few of these filters:
65923


Pour the contents of the drain box through the filter and into a disposal bottle.

Now look at what's left in the drain box, the filter and on the magnetic drain plug.
If all you find are a few tiny particles...you don't have a Transmission problem.

Do this and get back to us with more info and we'll do our best to help!
