    Hi Darrel_B - It might be helpfull if you could write a bit better description of what actually happened to your bike, noises it made, etc.. that way people may be able to relate their similar experiences to you for your benefit. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

    well while i was riding my bike, it just suddenly stopped and wouldn't start no more. i have put more oil into it but it still wont start at all.. it didnt really make any sound but before the bike completely died it just had a problem with revving up.... and then just stopped a few minutes later....

    Is the engine seized?

    Does it try to crank over when you hit the start button??

    What is the battery volts when sitting with ignition on, and also when cranking? (measure with a multimeter)

    if it were to be seized, i found a bare motor for the fzr 250, do you think that is enough for the bike or do i need anything else to go with that.... my bike is a 1998 model or so it says on the registration.... but i dont know how to check what model i have really.... please give me some thoughts.... i would really want to ride it soon.... <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( -->

    Have you checked your kill switch? maybe you hit it by mistake.

    I had someone flick my killswitch when my bike was parked, i came back, put the key in the ignition turned it and the red oil light came on!! I hit the start button and i got nothing!! i was so worried about the oil cos the light that i never thought to check the switch.

    I may also be completely wrong, but taking a few seconds to check the killswitch cant hurt.

    I wouldnt just get all hastey and start pulling out your engine, If i was you, id get a hold of a trailer and take it down to your local bike shop and ask just for a quote on whats wrong with it, that way they can lead you into the right direction into fixing it yourself, or it might not even be that bad, maybe something simple and they may be able to fix it for you for a small cost..

    yeah i would but no one would really want to look at my bike.
    i've gotten in touch with all the major shops and the little ones but they're all just knocking me back cos they say my bikes too old for the mto service and they dont know where to begin with it.

    [EDIT]
    If you know anyone in and around Melbourne who would look at the bikes we all know and love(fzr250) then let me know and big props for finding it.

    so when you turn your key and switch your bike to on and push the button, does it do ANYTHING? like turn over, or is it dead.....?

    Take one of the side covers off- I think its the right side (anyone) which should expose the crank end. Make sure its in neutral. Get a decent spanner onto the nut and see if she will turn. If you cant get her to turn, it is seized.

    let us know

    Im guessing maybe a starter motor may be gone now, since nothing happens when you push your start button unlike before where it used to try crank over.. sounds more like an electrical fault.. fuse?

    Have you charged the battery and make sure that is holding charge?
    Did you run out of Gas?
