I have a 2008 ninja 250 with less then a 1000 miles and it won't start I've removed all old gas tried sea foam any suggestions?
Is battery charged? Did you put high octane gasoline in it? Is the air filter clogged for some reason? Is the choke on? Did you try pushing it down a hill, putting it in second gear, and releasing the clutch while going?

As a last option, spray a small amount of starter fluid in the air filter right before you start it. Not too much or you'll lock up the engine.

Was it sitting for a while? Was the fuel level low in the tank?

Did you add Seafoam (1 oz per gal) and fresh 87 octane without Ethanol?

If you think the gas was bad, drain the float bowls before trying to start again. It will take a bit of cranking to get the fresh fuel to the bowls, so be patient. Crank for 10 second max before letting it set for 30 seconds each time.

Let us know...
