Does it quit smoking after a while? If you park it on the side stand you can expect some smoke for a while after you start it.

Hard to say what might've been inside the mufflers you put on, oil or something... Just ride it and give whatever it is a chance to burn out.

By "thermostat" do you mean the temperature switch that is for the fan? The actual thermostat has nothing to do with the fans as they are set to come on long after the thermostat is fully open.
