Dropped - Oil in Exhaust

My bike fell over in the garage while I was out. It sat on it's side for a couple of hours. The tank is dented and the turn signal is twisted but nothing major - my pride, not withstanding. I'm still not sure what happened, jack slipped, dogs bumped, etc.

But, I stood it back up and let it sit for an hour. I fired it up and the exhaust was very smokey. I let it run for maybe one minute to try and clear it, but it didn't work. I shut it off. I checked the oil level and it looks the same as before.

Question: Is it a problem to have oil sitting in all the wrong places? Is there a procedure for checking? or, do I just need to run it some more?

Thanks for your assistance.
Cheers,
Paul

Sorry to hear of the tip-over. There is excess oil in the top end which needs to be cleared out. Take the bike for a nice ride.

Run / Ride it till most or all of the smoking is gone, then take your spark plugs out and clean or replace them so they don't become oil fouled

Most likely some oil leaked into the cylinder on the end of the engine closest to the ground. It takes a surprisingly small amount of oil to make a lot of smoke for quite a while. You might look at the clear tube at the bottom of the airfilter housing to check for any oil there. Then ride it, should stop smoking within a few miles, no harm done.

yea! you got it!

I still laugh every time I think of that pm you sent. I wanted to help but every time I typed the HTML code for the spoiler and sent it to you it made a spoiler and you couldn't see the code... It hard to show someone how to do it without actually making the code work.

See... Even that ^^^^ don't make sense!

Yep, what they said. The same thing happens if you turn your lawn mower upside down and then turn it back over and start it. Lots of smoke but no real damage.

I got no time for the jibba-jabba. - Mr. T

Thanks for the advice.

I rode about 100 miles today. The bike worked fine.

Thanks again.

Sounds like you need a decent stand?
