Didn't fog my engine so I figured I'd take it out every 1-2 months and run it around. Anyway it's been in storage for around 2 1/2 months so I pulled it into the garage and let her warm up and then took it around for a cold spin on the road. Not sure if this is something to worry about but it blew a bit of black smoke when I would blip the throttle and a very small puff of blue for the first couple of twist on the throttle. After that it was clear but I thought I would ask since this is the first winter for it 05 450.

I doubt anything is wrong. Sitting for 2 1/2 months the gas is probably going bad and causing a little smoke.

Don't worry, all is OK. Before you take it out again, use fresh gas and change the oil and clean the air filter.
