Question about Yamaha Motorcycles

94 yamaha blaster. Daughter was riding it out in first (she forgot to shift). We heard a pop, engine stopped and kick start is locked up.If we take the engine apart will be able to notice the damage

This is my baby and this will be the first time we've had to work on the quad in 10 years, aside from regular maintenance.

Blasters have a tendency to overheat, could've seized the top end. Hopefully that's all it is.

If she over reved it , you may have damaged the crank , this I suspect is why u cant kick it over , what id start with is the drive chain (or is it a shaft?) cover , what ur trying to do is get it move slightly backwards to take strain off kick start , u may need to remove spark plug to unload any cyl pressures as well , if after unloading pressure off the kick strt and then it begins to rotate freely , hold finger over sprk plug hole to ck for compression as u rotate it slowly with kick start , if engine doesn't unlock or have compression then im afraid its a tear down to look better at damage

No fuel or no spark. Quick test: spray some starter fluid into air intake and try to start it. If it runs and then dies, you've got spark but no fuel. If the bike quit with no prior symptoms, check spark plug wire not knocked loose, fuel filter clogged. (You do have gas, right?)

2 strokes get loud before they run out of gas. check your fuel lines and carb to see if your getting enough fuel to the engine.

My motorbike stopped when i was riding it and the wheel locked up. when i went to start it i couldnt kick it down. wats wrong with it and how much will it cost to fix

the engine is locked can try and spray some lubrication in through the spark plug hole aand let it sit awhile..make sure your oil is full and the right oil...once it has locked up and you break it free, the chances it will lock up again are great
