When I first started stunt riding in parking lots I was trying to learn scraping the 12 bar and hit it a Little too hard. Needless to say bike hit the ground. Took it a few minutes to start and when it did it ran rough. Oil had leaked into the airbox and caused it to smoke. I'm not sure if your bike has them I'm sure it does but I was told by Yamaha the reason it took a minute to start was the tip over sensor which makes the bike shut off when on its side needed to level out. I would still have it looked at but it may not be as horrible as what ur thinking. Good luck

Ok thx.

i just went outside and tried to start it and it wouldnt. I was going to try charging the battery but the lights come on when I turn the key on so I dont think anything is wrong with the battery. plus i just fully charged it last week.

Is getting the oil off the airbox something I could do on my own? (doesnt sound like it lol)

Yeah, I would recommend getting it checked out. I did my own, fairly simple. Another thing I know EVERY member on this board has done Atleast once... make sure ur bike is either in neutral or if it's in gear the kickstand is up. There's a sensor that will keep the bike from running or starting if it's in gear with the kickstand down.

Do not try to start your bike until you check the oil level. It worries me that you rode the bike home while oil was still leaking out of the bike.

You MIGHT be able to get away with this in a car. but NOT on a bike. There is MUCH less oil in a bike, and you can do catastrophic engine damage on a bike (engine=75% roughly of the bikes worth when selling talking about the difference between a $500 parts bike and a 2,000 ninja 250 if you catch my drift)

What side of town are you in? You need someone to come inspect it before something else happens. At the very least I would think you're low on oil and turning a bike over without oil in it is a sure fire way to sieze the engine.

Yea, When I had my gixxer my drive way is really steep and didnt have the kickstand locked all the way i guess or when I got off the bike to go grab my helmet as it was warming up the bike decided it wanted to lay down and take a nap. I felt so embaressed trying to pick up the bike. Bare in mind this was an older gixxer that is heavier than the newer ones by about 30lbs with a full tank of fuel. Lets just say trying to pick up a bike on a down hill slope by yourself is not exactly easy when your only 5ft8 and 140lbs and not asian.

up or down hill adds a variable to an already tough equation that im not sure can be handled with any degree of finesee without having practiced it many times over.

all the: "Pickup your bike" You tube videos I see, mostly show harleys with the "Round" engine gaurds that act as a "rolling pivot point" for the bike if you will that practically allow the bike to be rolled back over. Not so for sport bikes and although the method is still the same it requires a certain amount of grunt force that is hard for anyone who cannot alone already pick the bike up directly from the bars.

Yes oil can get into your air box....


More likely is that you got a bunch of oil that leaked up past the piston rings & got on top of the piston........


Sometimes this will temporarily lock up the engine because fluids can't be compressed like air. Once you cranked it back up you pumped this excess oil out vent tubes & through the exhaust system.......(leaking oil & smoking)

Now your spark plugs are all coated in oil which has been baked on by some run time (fouled out)
