I wonder if pouring in a couple of litres of kerosene or diesel fuel would clean it up. Of course you don't run the bike. Just rock it back and forth gently and drain it out. Fill with some cheap oil, run it for a couple of hours and then change the oil again.
This is not something I have tried but I have seen seized engines come back to life after soaking in diesel.
