Hi, i have been having trouble identifying why i get smoke from the exhaust only when the engine is warm. had a previous post on this and firstly i thought the smoke was white but it seems now to have a blue tinge to it. The coolant has small blotches of what looks like oil but im not sure. i know this could be a sign of a blown head gasket but the coolant level is not at all dropping after a long time of running. Oil and coolant is new but from the dip the oil looks to be in order, havent yet dropped it to have a good look. Also the sparks do not look clean, there new but they dont look like coolant has passed them, nothing smells like coolant from the back end either so im at a loss to what is happening???

Thanks again Ali

If you still haven't put any miles on it since getting it running don't worry about it yet. It might take a couple hundred hard miles to loosen up the rings. I rode my 81 that had been sitting a long time for several days before it quit smoking.

Pour a bunch of sea foam into your plug holes & let it sit for a day. Than run it with around 5 ounces of sea foam in the oil. That will help loosen the rings & crud inside the engine. Replace oil & filter after around 100 miles.

Bikes will also smoke a lil if their runnin rich.
