coolant ran dry, lost compression.. :(

So today I thought i'd drag it out and have a look into it a bit more. and guess what, the radiator was dry.. doh So basically i'm wondering, has this happened to anyone before ? I looked through the archives but couldn't find anyone stupid enough.. but am pretty concerned about what could be wrong with my bike.
I tried kicking it over for about 10mins straight with no luck, then tried roll-starting it a few times down my street.. but with no success. It sounded like it wanted to start, but alas it didn't. Compression isn't completely gone btw - it still has enough to lock up the wheel occasionally when i dump the clutch, but I can push the kicker through with my hand. Overall it's pretty disappointing.
Any thoughts/suggestions/abuse ? cheers

With any luck, a ring, piston, and valve job with new seal and gasket kit may be all you need. We'll keep our fingers crossed on this side of the pond. Otherwise, it could be expensive. Good luck.
