My friend has a RS250 and he's got a problem with it. Today he went for a short ride and the bike suddenly lost power, max. speed was 50kmh and the exhaust started making strange noises. He stopped, checked it out and he couldn't find anything wrong. After a couple of miles he stopped again and the was smoke coming out of the lower exhaust area. The lower fairing cought fire and was completely wasted.
Any ideas what could cause this? Damn, if the 250s catch fire, i'm not gettin one :eek:

only thing I can think is the plug in the front cylinder has loosened and fuel has spilled out and ignited, or the exhaust has came loose somehow. no luck.

Must be a fuel leak, which cud have run to the exahusts or hit a coil and ignited! if it is that wud explain loss of power
