Here it is after years of abuse hours of WOT miles of smiles a 3 self healing breakdowns, was out bobbing around the city one Sunday afternoon speed was extra slow rpm minimum 3k max just finished slipping clutches heavily ( small slow speed hill climb ) then BOOM stalled it sounded like a normal stall, tried pop starting it but tire skipped/slid thinking that’s odd must have sand on the tire. Tickled the starter button but still no start begins repeatedly pressing button ( sometimes the contacts get dirty) attempt one leg push start then running push start Engine is locked up right good. Eventually get the engine unseized by reverse pop starting it (pushing backwards) engine gives one sickly attempt to start sounds low on compression ,Checks 4 spark/ piston movement Hits engine with big stick to unstick potential suck valve/rings no luck = walk home :( day 2 bike is home and this is what I found wrong anti-reverse starter gear basket came apart and at some point the cam chain removed itself from the crank gear taking a nice nibble
