Question about 1999 Yamaha Xv 250 Virago S
Have you tried to push in gear ?
Remove the spark plug and see if this helps as there will be no obstruction to the compression.
Also remove the carburators and see if the intake are clean from any corrosion probabley due to water entered into the system thus seizing the valves and piston.
If all is clean and ok, thn the engine may have to be dismantled to check the siezure, could be at the crankshaft or the cylinders at the piston.
Not a bad idea if you first remove the starter motor thn tryto push it with any gear selected .
Good luck .
