All this is in the left side where I checked the timing right? Do I take off the bit there to get to the stator?The woodruf key should be a very tight fit in the crankshaft, you literally have to drive it out with a punch. Remove it and check the fit in the rotor groove if you see any signs of wear, it should just slide in. If there's any deformity then replace it. They get deformed if the rotor wasn't torqued properly.
I removed the plugs but didn't see anything glaring that would make me think that was an issue, but unless it was completely obvious I probably wouldn't see it.I would say remove the flywheel cover and try and turn the crankshaft, but maybe try pulling the plugs first and see if there's anything suspicious looking.
Shed is a bit misleading. It's a small barn-ish like building with a double wide door and window.Sheds and long engine runs, carbon monoxide and cooling fans for the engine, extraction fans for you, but your still alive unlike the bike., lesson learnt,
The oil light came on like it always done when the bike is on but not running. I didn't see where specifically the smoke was coming from. I was trying to figure that out when it seized.did the oil light come on ( flashing perhaps ) when very hot and any chuffing of smoke from the c/case breather??
