Clean up the airbox, check the air filter (replace it if its saturated with oil). Pull the spark plugs, cover the valve cover with rags then crank the bike over to push the oil out of the cylinders. Clean up the mess, clean the plugs, reinstall them then fire up the bike. It'll smoke like a bastard for a while but no need to worry.


When the bike was on its side the airbox filled with oil from the breather. It happens.

But the bike won't turn over yet. Why would that be?

Did you cycle the ignition? Most times when the bike goes down, it triggers the tilt sensor/bank angle sensor (?) which disables the bike from starting. turn the key to on, then off, then on. Do this 3 times. -Should fire up.

Its probably hydraulic locked by an oil filled cylinder.

That's why I told you to pull the plugs
