Question about 2007 kawasaki KLX 250
It would be a good idea to change to oil completely as it looses it's lubricating properties when it gets too hot. As I suspect you've cooked it.
Under the engine there is sump that store the Oil. At the lowest point in the sump there is a bolt with a washer on it. With a 2 litre tray (ice cream container) undo that bolt and the remaining oil will drain out. Wait 10 minutes till or untill it stops dripping. Refit the bolt with the washer.
On the right side of the bike there is a back plastic screw in cap a 6 inches or so above the rear brake. Remove and fill hole with 1.5 Litres of good oil ($40US). In a moderate climate you probably want to run an oil called "10W40" (the numbers in oil refer to the ambient degrees celsius that it is designed to be used in.) Refit the plastic black cap.
In your case there is some merit in running the bike for a while and repeat the process to flush out the system.
P.S. What you did was bad. Don't do it again. You probably need to change your air filter and tighten your chain too.
