I have a 2014 Honda Cbr 250, it has less than 500 miles on it total and I can't get it to start. It will start turning over but wont fully start, if I spray starting fluid in it it will start for a moment but wont stay on. I've checked the spark plug and it's still good and I think it's a fuel injector or fuel pump problem.

Starting on starting fluid but not running is a definite sign of fuel system problems. That's a fuel injected bike so I would also be leaning towards fuel pump problems.

A basic fuel system clean would be emptying the tank of the old fuel, replacing it with fresh fuel, then putting some cleaner in the fuel like seafoam. But if the fuel is only a month or two old I doubt that's your problem.

Do you hear a buzzing noise when you turn the key on? You should be able to hear the fuel pump bring up the fuel pressure.
My Victory is also fuel injected. It may be notable for a new rider to clarify that the buzzing noise happens after turning on the fuel/disengaging the killswitch. If your bike is parked and off, your killswitch should be engaged, so just turning the key on won't do anything.
