If the head gasket was leaking before the re & re the exhaust maybe full of water/coolant that needs to be burnt out.

What do you mean by a "head job"? Were solving a problem? did you have the head milled or at least checked?

i bought the bike 4 $800 knowing there was oil in the coolant, checked and cleaned out the water pump and than knew it was the head gasket.. spent the past week working on her and finally got her back together today. both head gaskets were bad

As Ken said it might be moisture in the exhaust. Run it for a while till the fan comes on and cycles off. Then let it cool down a few hours. Once cool check the coolant level before you restart after cool down. Also at that time check the plugs and cylinders for moisture. I went through this on my 83.
