    So I've had my brand new bike for about a month and it developed an oil leak from an unknown origin. 2 days into the oil leak the engine seized up. I engage the clutch and the rear tire just locks up. And suggestions? Already removed clutch p late and the pin is in place:-||

    Pull your back left engine cover off, where the chain goes in.
    Chances are you chain got loose and bound up on the sprocket.

    yeah, hopefully that is all it is

    if that fixes it, be sure to clean motor well and look for that leak - if head gasket is leaking, then it may run a bit rough and jerk that chain again

    There's no oil inside hehe. Unless it's a four stroke. But it's a two stroke.

    that's why an oil leak is so important on a 2-stroke
