Yesterday I went for a short ride on my 1984 honda 250 xr (maybe 10km's) when I got back to my driveway I was going 1/2 throttle in first down it when all of a sudden my bike locked up and backfired. I could not get the bike into neutral and the back tire was completely locked. So I put on the clutch and wheeled it down to my shop. After wheeling it down my driveway it went into neutral no problem. However now when I kick it when trying to start it the bike has no compression, the engine brake is permanently on, I can feel the air coming out of the pipe that the air usually comes out when the engine brakes are on. When I kick over the bike I can see the mechanism on the outside of the case moving and there is a disconnected spring however there is no way that I could even keep the mechanism from moving never-mind a little spring. Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be?
