I recently flipped my KRX and it will not restart. It was a slow motion roll to the unit on its top. Do I need to replace the tip sensor or additional?

Partially crank? As in not make a full revolution? If so you have oil in the cylinders, stop trying to start it before you hurt it. Pull the plugs and crank it over to blow the out cylinders, spray off the plugs, reinstall and should start, it's going to smoke like hell for awhile.

Your right it would be.
So this is a simple fouled plug thing, and not a over compression thing due to the volume of oil in the cylinder?
I guess what I’m trying to figure out is why the motor only half cranks?

I would pull the plugs like somebody else mentioned. It is hard to know how much oil got into the cylinders. If the valves in one of them were closed the oil would have nowhere to go and could cause the problem. Pulling the plugs will eliminate that possiblity or clear it and you will know for sure.

That worked! Clearing the top of the pistons oil pressure and replaced plugs.

Now looking to change fluids and be back in action. Seems I took in water through the air
Intake.

There is a clear tube above the right rear axle that allows you to see and drain anything in the airbox. You will be getting oil out of it for weeks.

It was in the airbox for sure, if it was enough to get in the engine who knows? Is the oil milky? Was it just oil in the cylinders? How did we go from a rollover to water in the intake?
