Check the oil level, you may have flooded crankcase from a sticky float or bad fuel tap

Pretty certain that bike has been dropped. Not by you maybe.

Have one myself, and unless crash bungs have been fitted even if you knock the bike over stationery you are likely to end up with a cracked case. Its just the way they are designed. Take a good look down low on the cases both sides you'll probably spot a crack if you are really looking.

the good news is if it is a minor crack a bit of metal putty will sort it. you will have to remove the casing to do it though.
Better still replace the casing, should cost less that €50, but be careful there are two different castings depending on the year so be careful to buy the right one.

Yeah crank case looks like it was damaged when I bought it but only looked like small scrapes and no damage to fairings at all. Gonna price the crank case up and check everything over tomorrow.
Thanks pal

If there's fuel in it then the oil will be thinner
