Ya. Make sure that you didnt hook a rad line into a spot where an Oil Line should have been! Change your oil ASAP too.

No they don't Have oil coolers but there are both coolant lines and oil lines running to the bottom and mid side of the engine that may have gotten mixed up.

Take out 1 of the spark plugs put a rag over the hole and stand back when you turn it over. If that doesn't work you might be in trouble. Did you figure out why the water got in the oil yet and how much did the coolant tank go down. If it is only a little bit, is there a seal you could have damaged? If it is a lot I think the hoses bieng hooked up wrong may sound right.

you may have a loose wire between the relay and the starter or the battery could be low. Take a voltmeter at the starter post and ground it anywhere and see if you get 12+ volts to the starter if not that is your problem. If the voltage is there and you can feel the starter engage then pull a plug and see if it will turn over.

1. make sure the motor turns freely. if it's jammed the starter will click but not turn over. You may have jammed something when reassembling. One way to check this is to take the spark plugs out, put the bike in 5th gear and see if you can turn the rear wheels (and motor).

2. If the motors turns freely, your relay is shot. test it by by passing it. Ie connect the 2 heavier gauge wires togather and the starter should turn the motor over.

3. As for the anitfreeze and oil mixing togather.... not sure. But do not assume the worst (crack block) untill you have eliminated the easier fixes like gaskets. And always suspect the last thing you took apart...

good luck
