I found that when i added to oil to the fill line on the sight glass and parked the bike on the side stand it would smoke when started, so i don`t fill to the line anymore. About 1/4 Qt less. and worn valve seals will let oil leak into the downside cylinders. Did somebody play a joke on you and add 2 cycle mix to your gas tank? :lol:

Is the smoke, blue, black or white?
