Happen today, bike stalled a few times, went to restart and the kickstarter will not move at all? I have oil! Is it screwed?

sounds like your crank rods bottem bearing, happened to my 1985 RM125 $80 fix

Ya dude you're screwed, your piston may be seized, that's gonna cost huge $. Sorry I have never replaced one on a CRF150 so I don't know how bad it might be.

Same thing just happened today, 12/26/04 with my friend's CRF250f We just went riding on Friday, and it ran great. He takes it out today, and hit's second gear, and the engine lock's up. We can still shift gear's, so I think it's not the bottom end. The piston is jammed, or a ring broke is what I assumed.(i've had it happen to me on other bike's, also)inside the cylinder is where the problem is, so tomorrow we will pull it, and i will let you know.
