Exclamation Help! ASAP Bike starting problem, then smokes!

I have a 2006 600RR..
Day before yesterday, I go to start my bike, It starts just fine. It idles for a second normally, then all of the sudden the bike dies, and the check engine
light in the corner comes on, and the oil light in the guage comes on.
I try to crank it again, and it just cranks an cranks an cranks. Doesn't start.
Well I keep trying, then i decide to give it a little throttle.. It then acts like its going to start, and dies again. Then I hold it full throttle and try to start it, and it starts right up. But when it does start, it pours smoke everywhere for about 5 seconds. Looked to be blackish blue smoke? But then after that it runs just fine all day.
Then today I try to start it. And it won't start again. I hold the throttle all the way, and it fires right up, but then it pours the smoke again, the same way.
Both times i've had this problem, its been when the bike has sit over night.
After the first time it starts like this, the times after that it starts just normal

Does anyone have any idea what my problem is?

It was partially flooded.. the smoke was residual gas in the cylinders. Prolly has a flashed spark plug, that your dealer should prolly look at.

This happens if you start the bike for a few minutes, and then shut if off sometimes. The oil light is also a malfunction indicator for the fuel injection. If it starts flashing at you, then there is a code stored in memory.

Take the bike out and run the piss out of it. If you're still in break-in just don't do any hard accelerations but you can still run the rpm's up to the rev limiter as long as the bike is under load. If it keeps doing this have the dealer take a look at it.

The oil light will always be on if the bike is on but is not running because there is no oil pressure.

Have you done any mods to it lately?

Does it idle normally?

Yep, for some reason you are running real rich on start up (hence the black smoke) and need to open the throttle to get the mix lean enough to fire. Dead plug could do it but so could a bad fuel rail that isnt holding pressure and dripping into your cylinders when it sits? Maybe a leaky injector solenoid? just some ideas, some how gas is dripping into the a cylinder or 2 or 4 as it sits ... let us know what the deal was!

If you're short cycling the motor then yes. Meaning if you're cranking the bike for 2 or 3 minutes and then shutting it off, if you're taking short commutes or putt-putting around at low rpm's all the time. What's happening is the motor doesn't run long enough or hard enough for the spark plug to get up to it's "self-cleaning" temperature. So the carbon is building up on the plug and eventually fouls the plug. You need to take the bike out and run it hard and hot to get the spark plug temperature hot so it can clean itself. Now get out and ride that damn thing man! Just don't stop for anything.
