No one ever figured it out. The same thing with loss of compression. If you pulled the clutch and coasted to the side, chances are it was not the clutch. Pull the plug and check it for oil, it could have siezed and oil ring, mabe not. You could have also siezed a valve. anyway to verify it's not the lower end, Pull the plug and GENTLY stroke the kick starter. If it moves smoothly chances are you didn't do any major damage. Additionally loosted the oil galley bolt on the line outside of the head and check the oil pump operation....If you stroke the kicker and oil comes out of the line, thats a good sign. Do those things and let us know what you find. We can then move onto other remedy's.

Did you pull the plug and try the kicker? You didn't say...

My guess is a slipped or broken cam chain or valve spring. Rattling might be from piston hitting valves, bending them, then valves jamming open. That would keep piston from making top dead center. Don't keep trying to force the kickstarter. I would pop the head and have a look. Not likely to be crank-related, or anything else in the bottom end.
Could also be oil-related. Either way, the only way to properly diagnose is to tear your top end down. Good luck.
