Hey guys, i have a question for you all.
I have an '06 650l with a little over a thousand miles on it and I'm getting
a puff of black smoke that smells like oil when I come off the throttle.
Is this normal? The bike is bone stock with the exception of a clarke 4.0 and 14/48 gearing.
Could the 100+ degree temps we are having here in cali have anything to
do with it?
I have changed the oil correctly, or or at least I think I have been.
A friend of mine bought one a couple of weeks after I did and it's doing the same thing.
Is this normal?
Will doing Daves mods and getting the mixture fattened up help, or does that have nothing to do with it? Smog pumps going in the lake too!
I am running rotella t 15-40 and my friend is running 10-40 full synthetic, so I know it's not the oil.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Burly, The rotella will always cause a slight smell untill it breaks down a little. The stink is even worse in the heat. My XR 600 does the same puff, always has.
