Hi everyone, I got a 2011 ZX-10R 2 weeks ago with 19k miles and I’ve put 300 miles on it. I rode the bike to my buddy’s house to put it on a trailer and take it to Chuckwalla, but I started it back up after I got to my buddy’s house and I heard kind of loud pop and then white smoke started coming out of the air intake and around the bottom of the tank. I immediately turned off the bike and haven’t touched it since. Does anyone have any ideas what it could be or how I would go about troubleshooting the problem?

It sounds like a head gasket. Check for coolant in your oil, oil in your coolant. I'll bet your oil looks like a milkshake.

Do a compression test, then a cylinder leak down test if you don't see those.

Such a sad turn of events. I hope it wasn't the head gasket.
