Thumbs down 07 zx6r smokinnnng

whats up guys, i had an accident about 2 weeks ago on my zx6r and couldnt ride it back home. my brother picked me up in a truck with a camper, so we had to take the bike back by laying it on it's side. we got it unloaded the next day, and just today i had a chance to check out the damages. Body work isn't too bad at all, but when i started it up it had black smoke coming out of the exhaust continuously for about a min or 2.

anybody know how bad of a problem this might be?

Laid on it's side, in a truck, overnight? Probably got oil in the cylinders.

Pull all the plugs, rinse it inside and out with a water hose and do an oil change.

Yup. Maybe even toss some seafoam in for the heck of it. Change the plugs and the oil/filter afterwards

Send a message via AIM to houseofpaint
Might want to pull the airbox also and clean all the oil that's probably in there as well as checking the air filter.

Make sure the air box isn't full of oil. Check oil level and ride
