I just bought a race bike that has been sitting for a few months, the bike in in exc cond.The battery was dead so I get it started for about 4 min and shut it off. So next day notice alittle oil emulsion in the sight glass oil looked kinda light colored so then I check the radiator while charging up the battery today and it was dry...so I started adding water and it never seemed to be filling. I then removed the plug from the sump and water poured out of it. So I either have a bad head gasket or bad liner???? When it started up for those few minutes, no white smoke or anything, the engine sounded really tight?
i`m gonna refill the sump with oil and drain it. any suggestions on what to do next????

compression check

could be the water pump seal
or head gasket

water in oil is not good

what kind of "race" bike did you get?

I know the water pump seal is also gone because there was a weep from the weep hole also. Would a bad seal let all the water from the radiator dump directly to the base? the bike is a 98 fireblade

Yes - It would be a bad seal, and you need to get that fixed ASAP.
