White Smoke at Start
So the wife is afraid to ride her Baby she calls Beulah. She's a 2008, barely 6000 miles I think, we came home monday the 12th after riding just under 500 miles in the capitol reef area. Monday night back home it rained a little over night, even my bike got wet.
My wife is a very easy rider, never red line, slow acceleration ( drives me nuts), only gently laid bike down in driveway a couple times, never downed at any speed, no off roads,
The last two days or 3 the wife is concerned about exhaust smoke. It start's to smoke after its been warming up for about 30 seconds and it stops smoking after two or three minutes. Air moisture is pretty high in the AM's now, and it's in the lower to mid fourties at 8:30 am.The smoke never lives longer than maybe 1 1/2 feet away from the exhaust hole. So there is no smoke filling the air like a forest fire. ( Last bike did that with 300 miles)
Wife has done some research of possible causes, she's now asking the forum thru me if somebody has had the same problem. We'll be bring the bike in to our mechanic on Monday anyway, but she'd still like to have peoples opinions.
2005 50cc scooter, 2007 GS500f, 2008 DL650 Vstrom,
