I'd be surprised if anyone knew what this meant.

Someone took it out and zip tied it under the gauges for whatever reason. Or someone knew what the problem was and for some dumbass reason zip tied the replacement part there?

You should be able to bump start it. Why haven't you done this yet? Just fucking bump it off every time you want to ride or fix it.

I'll give you $100 for the bike.

Hi everyone well I took the bike to a registered mechanic who has many years of experience in sports bikes. It turns out that my bike is locked or has an Fd up motor which is repairable. I can either by a new motor or sell bike as is. The mechanic did a manual crank by hand but motor locked up still afterward. Thanks everyone for your time to help me out with this problem, now Im going to try and sell bike as is for parts or to be rebuilt.

Registered mechanic??? WTF is that?

You said he was able to crank it over by hand but it's still locked up? If it was able to be turned over it's not locked up.

When I mean he's a registered mechanic, I mean he actually went to school and became a state certified mechanic unlike the other person I went to who was not a mechanic. Also no on the $100 lol but thanks. The mechanic said that he would crank it and once the bike started rolling it would lock up again. Also that the pistons were shot. : (
