How long was your engine running with the oil level dropping?

Did the engine stall out on you during this oil drain down?

Is the engine turning over with the kickstarter or is it completely locked up?

If you can't kick the bike over with the decompression lever pulled in you're hosed. More than likely given this scenario, the motor has seized.

Does "ro55ifumi" stand for Rossifumi as in Valentino Rossi by any chance?
