help please! I was riding may 84 gl1200 to buddies shop to work on engine. Had a severe ticking noise and thought it was valve tappets and was going to check them out. while going to buddy's shop it just died and while I was coasting I down shift and tried to let clutch out to restart and rear tire just slid, stopped and tried starter and it just made light clunk every time you hit the button. would a broke starter chain cause engine to lock up. If not what could be the problem? oh I just changed oil after 200 mile ride with seafoam in and when i drained oil I found brass/copper shavings.

changed oil before ride to buddy's shop.

Whatever was making the noise has finally came apart and locked the engine. Trying to think of what is brass or copper in there and all I can come up with is the stator windings, clutch rivets and engine bearings.
