    Pull the little timing cover. If it always stops at TDC...

    Ok, so it isn’t actually seized...

    Something still doesn’t sound right. You should be able to turn the crank in the opposite direction quite a bit, and move the offending piston back into BDC.

    This is probably a good time to look into one of those $20 bore scopes from Amazon and take a peek down the spark plug hole. Or pulling the valve covers should point out the bent valve(s) pretty easily.


    I’ll put my money on it being a failed chain tensioner or guide. Which would explain the noise and possibly the reason why the motor won’t rotate, as the overly slack chain is now snagging on something.

    fingers crossed...
    Haven't torn into the motor yet, still plugging away on the XT. I have found an engine from a 2008 wrecked 1125r for a reasonable price. I'm not concerned with matching serial numbers. Depending what the issue is, I may install the 2008 motor.

    was the ticking sound on the video like your 1125?
