Hi and welcome to FixYa,

You have two (2) concerns and are interrelated to each other:

  • lean right, oil light comes on - the 2T oil reservoir on most NSR designs would be attached to the right side, relatively high on the frame;
  • on leaning towards the right, the contents of this reservoir would be displaced because of the angle. The 2T oil level sensor/switch would erroneously sense low or no 2T oil condition while thus leaned;
  • this sensor/switch marked "Oil Level Switch" is connected to two (2) wires Green/Red and Green (ground);
  • the false "low or no 2T oil" would trigger the "Low Oil/Ignition Warning" light to glow red; simultaneously
  • the other Green/Red wire would go and trigger the PGM-III to switch OFF, hence the engine cutout.
Solution would be to fill the reservoir with appropriate 2T oil.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Is there a trick to kick starting my nsr 250??

I stand on the left hand side of my bike and lean over the seat.
I then use my hand to start my MC 16. Every one thinks it is funny but my legs are too long and the kick stater is too short. I hope this is what you meant.

1993 honda prelude si 2.3 liters cuts off while driving

Smoking out the tailpipe is usually caused by worn rings, or really worn valve guide seals. (if it is an oil smoke) If it is a black smoke, it is running too rich, maybe an injector leaking or stuck open.

Nsr 250 mc21 low on power

you don't give much information on how the bike is running.  But most times when there is a performance decease it is best to clean the fuel system.  Spray some Gum Out or similar product( I prefer Deep Creep and Sea Foam) in the carb. then follow up with some in the tank.  Also change the fuel filter.
