i have a 2001 Yamaha yz426 that i got for real cheap but the eng would no kick over i thought that the cams have jumped timing but after removing the plug i soon found out that i had more on my hands she is locked up tight... well i was wondering if the 426 was known for seizing the crank or rod, it did have oil in it .

well i teared it down and it was a rod, looks like she got sum fuel in the oil and i had sum small grooves in the oil pump between the two i guess it caused the rod bearings to fail =( about 275$ in parts
