I think smoke at startup then running ok after a few minutes is a sign of worn valve seals.

They allow oil to seep into the cylinder overnight that burns when you start it up, but the leak is so slow that after it burns the oil out of the cylinder it stops smoking.

At least that's how it works in cars. I have absolutely no knowledge of the valves in these bikes.
