so I'm at a loss, and need help. I bought this quad for the wife and it ran great until the other day. I was loading up to go out for a ride, and the quad died and brought me to a halt. now i try to start it and all it does is click at the starter( it's new) so wanting to dig into it a bit I took the pull start cover off ro have a look. hit the starter button and it wants to crank but it only does a 1/16 of a turn. it's like the crank is jammed. took the crank case cover off and everything looks good no missing parts. but I tried to turn the crank by hand and well it doesn't move at all. what do I look for next? do i pull the engine out and tare it apart? need some help on what to do next.

If the crank won't turn, there is a major problem. If it wasn't knocking before or the oil light wasn't on, then it points to the cam chain jumping and now the valves have been hit by the piston. So...sorry...IMO..she needs to be pulled and pulled down. Don't try and start it any more.
