It was a nice country road near LinKou, at night. But I needed to stop for a minute to render the services of some local shrubbery by the side of the road. So I parked up and put the machine on it's side stand with it's engine still running, crossed over the road and proceeded to carry out some business required of nature.
Then behind me there was the tell-tale crash of a bike toppling over onto it's side. There wasn't much I could do at the time because my widget was still hanging out, but fortunately the auto cut off tripped and the engine stopped.
When I straightened her up and got her going again, I went back across the road to pick up the motorcycle. It started fine but there was some whitish smoke coming from the exhausts. The smoke from the right side vanished after letting the motorcycle idle for about 3 minutes, however, the smoke on the left side lingered until I got home - 30 minutes later.
I took the bike for ride today and for the most part, the smoke has disappeared. However, I noticed that if I accelerate abruptly, thick light blue coloured smoke is still emitted from the exhaust on the left - the side the motorcycle fell onto.
So I put it down to oil getting past the cylinder heads while the bike was on it's side. It still pulls fine and it sounds the same, but I'm not sure whether I should let the oil burn off gradually or take it in, get it opened up and cleaned out.
No ribbing about dropping the bike, please.
