Ever since my girlfriend backed up into my '97 GSXR 600, it won't start. It's been 3 weeks now.
The engine turns (fuel OK, full choke) over but never actually starts up.
My bike does not have the Tip over sensor, so thats not the problem.
I cleaned out the airbox, which had a decent amount of oil in it. Checked
spark plugs and they look OK.
Bike fell on the left side and sat on the floor for about 1 min. Any
ideas???
I'm afraid some engine oil may have seeped into the carbs.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Tips on fixing fairings for cheap??

i hope you gave your girl friend a fuckin good slap

i'm no expert but oil in the box should be from a breather hose going to it

have you checked all connections at side of bike, and the fuses, is the fuel valve under tank opening ?

Mine took about 15 minutes to get started up after getting run over.
Check your airfilter, it might be completly ruined because of oil.

Have you really let it crank?

You definatly might want to pull the carbs and gothrough them to make sure.

ill tell you exactly what it is...take off your rear tail plastic...on the right side there is a canister filter attached to the rear subframe. take that off and rememebr what hoses went where...then blow into the open holes and i bet fuel will flow out of there..if gas comes out then that was your prob..put it back together and fire her up! hope that helped!

how do i check the fuel tank opening? I disconnected the fuel line near the carbs and fuel was flowing?
Does that mean its OK?
Thanks,
Sam

P.S. I traded in the girlfriend for a newer model

Look... Carbed bikes flood really easy. Once on there side, it will dump a ton of gas into the motor and on the air filter... It is normal..

Hold the bike a WOT and crank it over... it should start up after a min or two.

Jay (pimpinMyGixxer) has a good idea too... But on my bike I remove the can that he is talking about.. Just plug the lines that go back to the carbs from it (there should be two of them) and then just vent the one from the tank out to the air...
