Can you try to free up the piston from the jug? Because we need to figure out what happened and go from there.

Try spraying pb blaster in the spark plug hole and let it soak for a bit. Then just a little turn to free it from the cylinder wall. Then check your timing. It could be binding up in the valves and not letting it turn.

Or just take the jug off and let’s start inspecting parts to again, see what happened

I’ve blown pistons and luckily was able to figure out what happened. Could be simple, could be time for more. But we will figure it all out together.

We are all quadcrazy.

@06kfx440 has some great points. Hopefully an easy repair. If not, start looking on ebay and craigslist. You can also try used atv parts houses like powersports nation.

Yes. Low compression equals bad rings. Or cracked piston. But pull it off and inspect the jug liner and hash marks

You should inspect the crank while your in there. Check connecting rod bearings and maybe inspect the timing chain and or tensioner.

Did it seize or just lose compression?

Time to rebuild. Pull the engine out and work on a bench so you don’t lose anything.

In would start by pulling the cylinder off of the engine and then the piston out.  Take a good look and see if you can find where the failure happened. Maybe the wrist pin clip came out, the rings maybe went etc. As @06kfx440 stated check the main crank shaft for any play.  If all else checks out on then your good to go.

If it’s just the cylinder head and piston then try to locate a new or used on on eBay.   If you find a good used cylinder head then spend the money and put a new piston in as well.  Makes sense to do this since your going through the effort. Make sure your oil pump is working properly and that the oil is getting to the head and lube all areas up good prior to start up. 

My guess is it was prob a failure of some sort with regard to the piston and the wrist pin clips or rings.

That was my thought too frank. You can tell what happened by pulling the jug off.

      Couple of quick points:
      1. the Odyssey, or FL350R. This was 30 years ahead of it's time.  Fast as greased owl crap, reliable, stupid fun.  Never took off.  Fast forward to the RAZR which was just replicating the FL350R.  What would Honda have done with it if it took off in '85?
      2. Everything about the ATC.  Reliable, good power for small displacement, easy to work on, simple front to back, still running 30 years later.  My son's 185s is 36 years old and outran a 400 Big Bear the other day until it ran out of gearing and the Big Bear caught it around 50 mph.  I can dig a 110 out of the weeds and as long as it has a little compression, I'll make it run in 2 days for about $20.  Can't do that with a Yamaha 225.
      3, 1981 250R.  What happens if you stick a CR250 2 stroke in a trike?  Yeah, a death machine.  Then by '85 the 250R had a 6 speed and would do 70 from the factory.  Death Machine +2.  The 250R gave birth to the trike racing circuit.
      4. The ATC 70.  Small, quiet and reliable.  Just never took off.  Gave birth to the entire small displacement chinese quad market.
      5. 82 200ES - first Big Red.  The BR single handedly created the UTV market as we see it today in the Ranger, Mule, etc.
      6. The ENTIRE chinese quad market in front of us today came from expired Honda patents from the 80's.
      7. 300 fourtrax.  By far the most coveted 4x4 in the market right now, absolutely indestructible.  Pick one up a couple of years old, stick massive wheels and tires on it, and you have a mud machine.  Kinda like the Polaris or Can Am...but reliable.  And cheap.
      To be fair, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawa, all picked their game up along the way and make good ATV's.  I'll leave the Polaris/CanAm discussion for another day.  While Polaris gave birth to the automatic, the reliability issues of both still exist today.  While great ATV's, I don't consider them any more than specialty machines.
       
      FIGHT ME.
      or debate...whichever is easier.

      My husband and I work hard for what we have. We had our new 2016 ATV in a storage unit, as we are currently living in an apartment. Our unit was broken into, along with 94 additional units. However our 4 wheeler was the only item stolen from the entire storage facility!!! Along with this, I am an expecting mother and this is definitely a financial burden we do not need. A police report was filed, but of course there are no leads and nothing seems to be in “the works” to find our vehicle.
      Please help us!!
