rear vtwin smoking
well long story short, got in an "accident" sunday.
the wind blew me off the road into a ditch (60mph winds gusts) i was only going 10-15 because i just rounded a corner. I was able to lay it down while falling and I slide off of it.
it shattered my windshield, bent my clutch lever and clutch shifter. Also apparently i didnt have the antifreeze coolant lid on tight enough so that opened up and spilled everywhere on the engine. luckily fork /front suspension is still good.
My dad picked me up in my truck, loaded it and took it home. Everything overall looks good minus what i mentioned above/dings/dents and one major item that I found out last night.
I started it up last night it idles fine and works great but after about 5 min it starts puffing white smoke out of the rear v twin cylinder exhaust gasket. It's where the exhaust tube meets the engine block. After about 5 more min its spewing smoke out the end of the exhaust and the connection.
Right now I am in the middle of taking most stuff apart because i need to redo the clutch friction plates, front fork oil, and clean the carbs.
It there anything that rings a bell on why it would do that after I laid it down? I thought it might be temporary but i tried 3 separate times and its only the rear vtwin. Which tells me something got messed up.
did i crack something? is this temporary? (i doubt it) what can i check? any suggestions would be great
Edit: forgot to mention I have a 1984 honda shadow vt500c
