Not enough information. Have you tried pulling the plugs and then rotating the engine by rolling the bike? (Try a higher gear to make it easier to turn the engine). Does the oil level look OK? Were you doing any extended wheelies? Has the bike sat up for a while?

What were you doing when it stopped running? What were the symptoms before it died on you?

Bump starting an SV is also impossible by first-hand experience.
Are you a 100 pound weakling? I rode around for 2 weeks without a clutch switch, I bumped it everywhere I went 1st 2nd or third. Usually 2nd though.
I do weigh 195 and run a sub 7 mile, maybe that helps.

And you can start the SV on a totally dead battery, but that takes some serious speed, and a lot of effort to fire the electronics

I bet he is going to say something about stunting it. If I remember a while back he threw a stink about it.

Guessing he seized it but we shall see.
