HI, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Did it stay upside down for any length of time?

Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 2 months ago.

It is not uncommon when one rolls over that it will smoke for a little while upon getting upright and restarting. The longer it stays upside down the worse or longer it will tend to smoke. This is caused by oil getting into the crankcase breather system and until it is gone the engine will smoke. Not usually anything to be concerned about. The only way to eliminate it is to either let is sit longer so that the oil will drain its way back down into the crankcase or to let it run and it will eventually burn it out of the system.
