If the cylinder, piston and rings are all good. Check your rod. It might have scored it on the pin from the rod to the crank.

Have a 2006 ktm 250 sxf seized rod to the crank got it changed reinstalled put motor back together now can not even kick it like somthing is stuck. Toke the clutch basket out, timing gear and water pump...

Your clutch basket is the link between the engine and transmission. Your kick starter rotates the clutch basket gear, which turns another gear at the engine crank. Remove either the basket or gear at the crank and see if the engine, and the transmission both turn. Sounds like the engine is stuck for some reason. At least you can cut the issue in half.

I have a 2003 Yamaha ttr125er. The connecting rod bearing was seized up on the crank. I am wondering if I will be able to disassemble the crank and put a new pin and bearing in and reassemble the crank...

Allan this is a shop job for the connecting rod. You should be able to do the rest yourself if your mechanic abillities are good. If you got the engine hot enough to seize it you might have more problems instore for you. Are you sure it is a con rod and not piston in cylinder seized? If it is a con rod bearing see what a shop would charge, then see what is available on ebay for parts. I have seen them (crank and connecting rod) on ebay between $50.00 and $180.00.

Ingersoll Rand type 2475 - The piston has seized on the crank - how do we remove

if it is seized the connecting rod to the crank u will probly have to cut it with a torch or grinder. be carful not to start a fire with the oil. if u cut the rod u may be able to salvage the crank and have a mechine shop turn it down then replace the piston and rod. but it may be scrap if u seized the connecting rod to the piston the u may be able to cut the piston pin but thats a tight spot u will probly need to cut the connecting rod to remove the piston and crank but like i said be carful u dont start a fire with the oil. . you may be able to get them loosed up a little if warm it up a little then u can work it back and forth to get it out. hope this helps good luck

My bikes engines one piston is not broke the connecting rod which damage the cylinder and the engine.what can i do of the broken connecting rod.

You would need to replace the rod $70 and needle bearing $30. Both appear to be avaiable at Babbitt's. A dealer would need to tear down the engine all the way then use a hydraulic press to press apart the crankshaft and then mount the new connecting rod and press the shaft back together. Dial gages must be used to get a correct centerline on the crank.

The total cost will likely be $1000 if a dealer does the repair from start to finish. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Uhh there are no rods in the head. That dealer has a loose rod in his head maybe.
The crank, rods and pistons are all in the bottom end of the engine.
What it likely is is either a broken piston skirt or a spun rod bearing.
Spun crank bearings are rare and sound deep.
A spun rod bearing can be fairly quiet on idle depending how bad it is worn out, but it will be really loud on acceleration. Piston slap from a broken skirt can be pretty loud too but it mostly sounds like diesel rattle only a bit less. Some have described it as a loud pinging sound like detonation.
Drain the oil and check for metal debri. If you can tilt the vehicle a bit for the oil to drain more towards the drain hole that could help. Then look for metal pieces and judge their size. There should be NO glitter whatsoever in engine oil, or any kind of debri. Now a rear end or transmission is different. Those always have a little metalic sheen to them.
Best of luck.

Replace connecting rod on crank

Very big job, you have to take the engine out of the bike and take it all apart making sure you remember where everything goes when it is time to put it back together, It maybe a better idea if you take it to a shop for fixing

Rebuilding 2002 jeep 4.0 need torque for the crank and connecting rods

Mains, 80, rods, 33...Don't forget to plasti-gauge bearings before final install. Make sure there isn't any lube on saddles or bearing backs before putting it together. Use pre-assembly lube on bearing faces and crank pins. Check that crank spins freely after each cap is torqued. If not find out why before continuing.
