650L white smoke problem

I have an 01 650L and at cold start ups it smokes(heavy) white for about a minute or so until warmed up. What could be causing this?

White smoke is water, condensation. when your done riding are you hosing it down and getting some in the exhaust?

no it seems to be all the time. could it be moisture in the air? It has been doing it more now in colder weather

Burning oil is typically bluish in color but it can look whitish too.

Smoke on startup is typically from oil leaking into the combustion chamber after shut-down. Most times this indicates worn valve guides.
