If you lost enough oil you may have done internal engine damage, their is a sensor in the oil pan that can go bad, it relies on the oil for cooling it.

2009 Honda 750 Shadow ran fine until the oild dipstick popped out of it's tube because it wasn't screwed in?? Now it just urns over but will not start.

If you ran it low on oil, there's a sensor in the oil pan that relies on oil to cool, and have been known to fritz.

I have oil laying in the air box , what would cause this , its an 2007 70 aero shadow. Carbs good , just have a puddle of oil in the air box

Honda equips it's motorcycles with a pollution storing device called a pollution tube. Place a pan in front of the rear wheel and look for the tube that has a plug in the end of it. Pull the plug and all the engine blow by , water, and other horrible gack will fall out of the tube and into the pan. This should drain the the bottom the air box of oil. Typically , what you are seeing in the air box is everything that comes out the engine breather. If there is a lot of oil , your engine was over filled and the excess went out of the breather rather than pop a seal or gasket. If it smells like gas, CHECK YOUR OIL LEVEL. If one of your carburetors had a float needle stick you may have gas in your oil . This can happen even though all the motorcycle components are good. Just change your oil and always turn your gas off when you are not riding , and you will not fill your engine with gas again.
