Questions & Answers
First, DO NOT crank this bike for now!
1. The other culprit could be/is the drive line - chain/front sprocket/rear sprocket. Carefully examine the area around the front sprocket where the chain rides to see if there is contact to any of the engine cases/swingarm area. IF this area is the cause you will see obvious signs of the chain rubbing something.. or the chain is excessively worn and loose and dry.
Look carefully around the drive line .... if you see nothing wrong.. then its internal
2. Drain the oil in a clean drain pan...one that can easily hold all the oil... you are going to run a magnet around in the used oil to see if there are any magnetic particles (a minute quantity of microscopic ones are normal).. you are looking for a quantity of larger chips or particles..(indication of internal damage). If a magnet does not show any unusual particles, then CAREFULLY pour the oil - SLOWLY! - through a FINE FILTER..(***** hose works well)..you need to see if there is aluminum ground up in the oil..(your engine will grind up aluminum!!) it will pack into crevices and corners...it will be very fine if it comes out with the oil. After this remove your oil filter... carefully cut it open and look for metal contamination(see above).
IF you find ANYTHING in these test, you need to find out why! This will involve a professional mechanic and some disassembly of the engine. The problem will be obvious when you get to what is causing the problem! (Either ferrous or non-ferrous should help the mechanic with the diagnosis).

In cleaning your bike you have caused some sort of problem. Start with checking the battery terminals to make sure they are connecting properly. That is what your problem sounds like. Then check to make sure you have not dislodged any electrical wires, and lastly, get your battery checked to make sure that it has not dis-charged during your cleaning operation. This would be easier with a manual if you have one.
