sounds seized to me. you might want to try posting in the correct section though, your bike is a 4 stroke, this is for 2 strokes.

could be siezed,and if you did get water in the cylinder and hydrolocked the engine then put it away without trying to pull the plug and checking, it is probably rusted by now and siezed up from the rust.good luck let us know more as you go.

You blew the crankshaft. Most likely the connecting rod bearing has failed. Cylinder seizures tend to free up once the engine cools down. Crankshaft seizures stay stuck.
