Hey Guys, washed the bike. Lost my pipe plug but was very carefull not to get water In the exhaust tip. Fired her up and white smoke, but not very thick. She seemed to run a little rough, wouldn't idle very good. She always ran like a top, till this. Anyway, the smoke started to go away and the idle got a little better.

Did I get water in the pipe and it just burned off? This is the first for me. My 05 never smoked from new till now. What could it be?:confused:

WORRIED........

if the white "smoke" stayed in the air for a long time like a 2 stroke, you should be worried, but if it just evaporated it was just steam. i would not be worried especially because it want away and returned to regular idle. the other thing that you could do is take out the big bolt in the bottom of your carb, it could have water in it as well. good luck man
