i work on cars but am getting into bikes
im not sure if it would work on bikes(unless you had an adapter), you can use a coolant pressure tester, add about 5lbs to it. disconnect spark or fuel so the engine will just crank. then see if the needle bounces at all. if it bounces, the cylinder pressure is making its way into the water jackets. it can narrow it down to blown head gaskets or cracked head.

I know I'd go too far with a drill.
