Good .. provided the starter motor turns the engine over - means you don't have a seized motor nor one without compression .. so no major damage ..
You may not be able (yet - limited by the number of post you have here) to send a PM ... but you can send an email .. the difference is that the receiver will know your email address .. not usually a problem here. So do that and see what you get. Oh .. Mexico is a big place .. when you send out your email .. narrow the area down a bit so you can get someone local not the other side of the country. Might be best sent to a HU community - see over on the left - brown thingy .. Community .. then 'Send message to a community' .. choose the closet one.
One thing you can do - clean the bike .. anyone working on the bike will want it clean before they start .. keeps them and the insides of your bike clean. It does not take much oil to make a big mess. It may also help find the problem. The two (leak and not running right) may not be linked ..
