What is wrong with my bike?

OK.. So I took the F4i for its first ride last night,
got back to the garage and parked it (2 minute ride just to test functions),
Thought i may have a gas leak on the left side so i laid it over onto its side for about 4-5 minutes,
no gas leak ,
stood her up and worked on the phiddies for a bit,
painted my tank on the f4i and various ,
hour or so later i tried to start it up,
LOCKED UP.
put her in 5th gear,
jacker up on an ammo can,
spun the back tire backwards until it hit the same cylinder that it was locked in,
tried to start, locked on the 4th cylinder.
Tried that 3 times and said **** it,
rolled it back 3 from the locked cylinder and took it down the driveway in 5th and dumped the clutch,
SUCCESS.
Motor Free.
Started ran fine,
took it for another test run, LOTS of smoke at first(from laying it over),
seems to have low power and some random sputters......

what's up?

rings? sleeves? pistons? valves? what gives? :dontknow:

It sounds like you might have gotten oil into the airbox and it almost hydrolocked? It will be ok but just dont do that anymore you could have messed your engine up really bad

Next time if it has a hard time starting up, dont force it to crank you need to remove each spark plug and get the oil out by cranking the engine. If youve already started the bike just run it until the smoke goes away it will be about 10 to 15 minutes after the oil has been burnt off the smoke will go away and your power will come back.

Your bike has more than motor problems, it doesn't know if he/she/it is a boy or girl. :confused1
