Hey All, its been a miserable day! I was out for a nice ride. actually on my way to change my oil at a buddy's garage when after running great at high RPM it lost power. and came to a stop. There were no strange noises. just a lack of response to the throttle until it died when I pulled in the clutch. It would not start back just by letting the clutch out while moving and when it came to stop I tried to crank it and it took my entire weight to push the kick starter slowly. We picked it up drained the oil and it was very low! but no metal shavings. pulled the spark plug and tried to crank. it kicked better but was still stiffer than when the plug was in. I poured a little oil in the cylinder and replaced the oil and kicked it without the plug and it started to loosen up but nothing near normal. I pulled the clutch cover and everything is free and moving as should (no locked up bushing) Does this sound like I "locked it up" I was hauling when it was running... occasionally touching the stock revlimiter in top gear so I thought it was the coil that burned and it was electrical when it died but with a stiff kick starter I'm thinking it was my dumb butt and lack of oil! I can kind of get it to turn over...if I can get it started am I out of the woods? or is the damage done? Could it hurt it more me trying to get it started? where do I start in looking for problems. split the case? I feel competent to work on it as long as no machining is required! I may have to call on BWB63 (Bruce) to get advice on how to build it right now? (the reliable 680 setup, like manufactures and part numbers so I can build a tried and true engine.) Its late and I'm at a loss since I have budgeted for this! Any help is appreciated! please! Thank you Justin T.
