Bike cruelty!21250194.jpg, Pull your spark plug, clean and dry it, replace it, try to fire it up, if it does, let it warm up, and listen for any unusual noises, if you hear em' then you troubles have just started, oh yaa, take her out for a spin, make sure your tranny, isn't cashed! There you go sport!

Tranny is slang for "transmission".

 

The spark plug is in the top of the head, as shown in the picture. I don't know how much room you have under your gas tank to get in there to remove it. Some of the plug wells on those YZs are petty deep. Take an extended socket to get out and require the tank to come off to access. 

 

If you have any riding buddies that work on their own bikes, ask them for help.

 

Had the fuel petcock been left on while the bike was laid over? Always turn it off when not riding.

If the bike has a hot start or manual decomp lever, leave choke off, gas off, pull and hold lever, hold full throttle and kick over several times, like a dozen or more. Release lever and throttle and try to start normally.

 

If you have any ignition safety switches, like on the clutch lever , or a kill switch/button, make sure those didn't get buggered up in fall.

 

As a last resort, you might try push/pull starting it. If you get it going doing that and get it cleared out, then it may start normally after that.

X2 here

Carb is just flooded. I don't see any reason to need to change the spark plug? Or transmission ruined? Being on its side shouldn't have to do with any of that, and if the oil couldn't even itself out in the case after being back upright over night you already had previous issues.

Like I quoted just leave choke off, WOT (wide open throttle) and give her some kicks. Hot start release could help too.

Once the bike starts/runs for a second, if it dies, just try starting normally.

Then go tear it up mate!

You could be right, but if the bike slammed hard on to the garage floor, his troubles are just starting.

Jason, you might want to purchase a book, and manual to teach you about motor cycling in general, its always good practice to learn about any motor sport hobby, it keeps you informed and you will become smarter on the subject.

Not anymore, see Bruce Jenner, or is it catlin? I'm confused already.  I'd change the oil and put in a new plug.  Should start right up.
