When you tried to bump start it, the engine turned over OK but it didn't fire up?

When you say "going backwards" what do you mean please?

Well, I did check and I was trying one way and not the other. I'll open it up again and check. However I tore the gasket when I opened it earlier and now there's a an oil leak... Sigh.
Well, I took it down a very steep hill that I usually use to bumb start and it just locked up the rear tyres. When I rocked it in heat I hear a very soft pop when the bike was rocking backwards.
I did have it too dead center.
I'm tempted to take it to the bike shop to get the guy to fix it. I know I shouldn't...

Thanks for all the advice.

With the plug out, will the engine turn freely using the flywheel bolt. Just worried there may be a cam timing issue and valves hit piston when you say the wheel just locked up.

Gears select properly? Can you push the bike along and find all the gears, plus neutral? Or take the plug out, lift the rear wheel, turn it and change gears.
You tried to bump start it, so the clutch disengages.
That also implies that the gearbox is turning correctly, at least in the gear you used for the bump start.
