Lots of smoke after oil change then changing the transmission oil fixed problem?

I got an oil change on my 2003 Burgman 650 today & right away lots of smoke was coming out of my exhaust when accelerating. I was on my way back to the shop & stopped for gas. Then my bike wouldn't even start. I had to walk the bike several blocks to the shop. After checking the bike they said that the transmission oil also needed to be changed. Now the bikes seems to be running great again. What gives? I've only had the bike for about 5 days.

Welcome New Member, BUT Where are You? Please fill out your user profile in the User Control Panel, include type of scooter and location. I wonder who you took it too? If I were you, I would not take it back there again. I have a few places on my Blacklist, places that I will never go back to again, ever. It's Very weird, sounds like they overfilled it. They just said the transmission thing as a ruse to get it back in the shop to fix it and drain some oil out. Or they could have just left the fill plug out and it dumped all the oil out til it quit. No telling what DA's will do. They probably did change the transmission oil anyway, since they said that was the "problem". Look around for a good scooter shop, I recommend finding one that is NOT a Dealer, as they will rob you blind! Some small independent shops will treat you right. But if they don't know your Burgman very well, give them a copy of the Service Manual on a flash drive. Look the Service Manual over yourself very well to learn all the ins and outs about your bike. It's a marvelous machine!
Did you get those RUSTY FORKS polished nice and SHINEY? ELF likes shinely things!

I'd put my nickle on overfilled, watch for leaks, gaskets can be damaged engine problems can occur and the name of the place should be published so others don't go there , like sky powersports in lakeland and lake wales bad bad stuff done to my bike by them. even if bike was damaged before you took it to them they should not have let you take it on the road without warning you

I agree, they over filled it and used the transmission as an excuse.

Those rusty forks went bye bye because I traded the Burgman 400 for this Burgman 650 last Saturday.

I get the smoking due to overfill, but what I don't understand is why it would not start. Can someone explain please.

Common sense, the least common of the senses.

possibly a fouled plug from too much oil in cylinder

Yeah I'm still a bit confused as to what happened. I rode to work today & it rode great so I'm just glad it's running good. The mechanic told me to bring it back in 2 days just for a checkup so I plan on doing that. They seem to be honest but they mainly work on small scooters so they're probably learning on mine but they are just more affordable. The place is called Scooter Ave. 750 E Sample Rd

Yep, sounds like they overfilled the crankcase. Very bad thing in general to do. But the plugs eventually fouled from the oil and the bike won't start after that.

They drained the crankcase of the excess oil and cleaned the plugs, and maybe changed the transmission oil, although if they wouldn't own up to overfilling the crankcase I wouldn't necessarily trust them do an unnecessary transmission service.

In two days they'll probably check the plugs again, and check to see if it blew out any seals and is leaking oil from their mistake.
