When I pulled it of the bike I had to turn the engine over to get the chain off. It would not turn forward, but it would turn backwards! And the damned piston went up and down too!!! I can only assume that a bearing broke or came loose stopping it from going forward. It was under warranty so I never took it apart. You may want to pop it open and look inside though, you never know.
well, this seems to be closer to the answer I was after.....More likeky too,warantee?....gone months ago,the engine has served me well though....great service...mabey its a simple fix,if I have to replace so be it she dosnt owe me a penny(-: thanx for your input.....Merry Christmas
