Dropped my R6 on the left side.. now it won't start. Ideas?

I dropped it coming to a stop in my apt complex, onto its left side, snapping the clutch lever (which I replaced last night, grrr).

Some liquid leaked out - bright green, I am assuming coolant.

The bike won't start now.. just keeps cranking... I think I almost killed the battery by now, too. Any ideas of common things I need to check? I waited for about 30 minutes after the drop before starting. Do I need to wait more for the flooded parts to dry?

Thanks, guys.

might help to include the year of your bike. where did the coolant leak from? the reservoir or someplace else? you have plenty of gas in the tank? may need to check the diag codes and possibly reset it if the tilt sensor was tripped. (not 100% sure on that one, but mine didnt start after it fell over once)

'03 Silver R6 with a few mods for sho and a few for go. Pic under re-construction.

It's an '01. Not sure where the leakage was from, most likely the reservoir, as I do not have a cap on it. Yep, lots of gas. Diag codes? I am not seeing anything on the display.

There won't be a diag code on the 01 R6.

Check that the bike is in neutral, you can also check the side stand switch and clutch lever switch just incase a wire was dislodged.

If your battery was flattened it may need charging before it has enough oomph to start the bike.

Most likely your carbs are flooded, repeated cranking won't help this and they just need some time to drain down <shrug>

Thanks Chunk, I will try it again when I get home after work. Here's to hoping it's just the carbs.

read the repair manual, there is a pretty good troubleshooting in section 8.

it can troubleshoot many many problems.
