    Hey everyone in need of advice on a 06 XB12Ss.

    The bike was in a minor accident and ran without any oil pressure. Now it is burning oil, smoking and knocking...

    Please any input is the best input.
    Thank you,

    At this point your best bet is to pull the motor and remove the topend. pull the cam gear cover and see if the oil pump and drive gear is broken. Burning smoke means oil is getting into the combustion chamber...either by bad piston rings or bad valve guides and seals. When you get the top end apart, check to see if you lost a crank bearing.
