Smoking after wreck?

Took my bike out to the track this weekend, to make a long story short, got bumped hard by another rider, ended up going over the bars, my bike went end over end twice and landed upright then fell to the side. All the plastics are destoryed. I got it mostly back together and when I went to start it was smoking out the tail pipe. I can't tell if it's oil burning or if it got flooded during the flipping or what. Anyone have any ideas?

Its probably oil the smoke should clear after running the bike
for a while

If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

Same thing happened to my bike after hitting a car head-on. Needless to say that wasn't much fun. Bike came away better than it should have. However, there was that same smoke issue you mentioned. It went away after a while. I'm pretty sure it's oil too. Let us know what happens.
