White smoke can be as safe as water vapor being blown out of your exhaust system, or your engine is sucking tranny fluid out of the transmission, if it's automatic. Even gas can show white or grey out the tailpipe sometimes, that just means you are accelerating too hard.
Check your transmission fluid. If it is low, have a mechanic find out why, tell him what you see. Otherwise, no big deal.

White/blue smoke coming out my 2004 400 dvx exhaust pipes


White smoke would be water. Blue smoke would be oil. Was the engine overheated ? If so probably a blown head gasket. Check oil and water to see how low they are and how milky they are.

Quad starts torun rich when it warms up.starts to run rough and blows blagk smoke


The hose between the carburator and the block is probably cracked and sucking in air. Sometimes you can just put some electrical tape around it and it will work for a while, but it may need replaced.

Ihave 1991 k/q ,has blow by but doesnt smoke but keep running it will blow out oil alot have shut down,??


blow by is cause primarly from worn rings and worn bores. The fix is to bore out the cylinders and fit over size rings. The major reason for blow by is a faulty air filter system that allows the engine to be "dusted" in use.

06 king quad spark fails while riding


you are fouling spark plugs. the atv is running way too rich. either the air filter is super dirty or exhaust has been modified (race pipe, baffle removed, etc)

if none of those have been done then maybe your carburetor needle is stuck open and is flooding the motor and the carb needs cleaned.

2012 1700 classic vulcan exhaust


The VTX 1800 is fuel injected which requires the additional sensors (oxygen, throttle position, etc). However the VTX 1300 is carbureted, which takes the sensors out of the equation. If you are changing the exhaust with a:
Slip on-muffler
  • remove old mufflers, and slip on new ones
  • could add a better air filter, and you get a better sound, minimal power gain
Full Exhaust System
  • Remove old pipes from the cylinder heads (i.e. jugs) and use a rag to wipe off the seat and block the opening.
  • once both pipes have been pulled from the jugs, prep your new pipes with windex. Clean them well, finger oil and other gunk can cause bluing spots
  • Install the pipes, torque them in place, re-clean the pipes and use a chrome polish.
  • Purchase carburetor jetting kit, and either take it to a shop to do it, or you do it. If you have never re-jetted a carburetor before, I suggest you go to a reputable shop and get it done.
  • With the carb completed, a new air filter (high flow K&N is what I use - I have gone through the same exhaust system replacement procedure on my sled)
If you replace the exhaust without completing the carb/air cleaner, there is a very high probability that you will get backfires every time you ride. This will happen especially on deceleration, and will eventually blow out your valve seat, causing the engine to feel weak due to lost compression.

2004 Quest 500--Starts fine. Will run for about 1/2 hour. Starts to sputter and back fire then stops. I remove plug and its black. Change plug and starts and runs as new. Then it repeats itself again....


The problem would appear to either be with the mixture or with the head. Too rich a mixture (too much fuel) will cause black plugs - when you take them out do the engine and plugs smell of petrol? You need to adjust the carburettor. Mark where the throttle screw is to start with and then slowly screw it (in - I think) to reduce the petrol flow.
The other alternative is that their is a problem in the head. Does the engine blow a lot of blue/black smoke out when it is hot. If yes it means a full engine strip down!
