So I was riding my bike down the road, and when I started to slow to a stop sign, the bike slowly bogged out and died. From there the kickstart would not move and the tire would not budge in gear. Something tells me that my piston rod is screwed or there's something on top of the piston. Any ideas on what the problem is?

Probably a seized rod bearing.
