Question about 2005 Yamaha FJR 1300

1 Answer

Smoke like hell

So I get plenty of smoke from my exhausts when I start up my bike, settles down after a while. i dont believe Im burning any oil, but the smell of gas is very high. I was convinced my carbs were getting flooded. but then I decided to run a small test. I kept the fuel line disconnected overnight after going out for a long ride. When I started 'er up the next morning, I noticed that the smoke was still noticeable (though not as bad) What could be wrong here. if it is flooding will, simply changing the float level setting change things??

If it's only smoking on startup, I wouldn't worry about it too much. What color is the smoke? White means leaking valve stem seals. If it's black, it means you are running ruch, but you want that during the warmup phase anyway. If it's running fineexcept for a little smoke on startup, I wouldn't worry about it (enough to tear into the carbs again anyway) Wink Oh if it was your floats, it would more likely be smoking through the rev range all the time.

White smoke from exhaust after changing fuilds


Is it condensation or actual smoke? White smoke is associated with diesel mixed in petrol and with quite strong smells. I suspect that it is condensation as water vapor is a by product of combustion and the motor/exhaust will have to warm up to clear it. Check for water droplets at the end of the exhaust to confirm condensation. Burning oil will cause a blueish smoke to emit from exhausts.

My harley smokes


all engines do cold. its water vapor and or the hot exhaust, causing the air, to change dew point, (looks like steam)
on the white smoke smells like burned oil , it is, and is slow to dissipate like steam, (see moms tea pot , and steam fast dissipation?)

if it is oil , its most likely bad valve guides and seals, or both.
if a compression leak down test passes, its not rings, (mostly)

I have a Z24 Cavalier and theres white smoke coming out the exhaust and timing chain makes a lil rattle noise when I first start it in the morning and tends to stall until it reaches the temp of 165ish...


So if it's not consuming oil and you are SURE to fill the radiator to PROVE it's not burning coolant ... then the other suspects are head gasket and .... A puff of smoke upon start-up could be caused by valve guide seals allowing some oil to leak down into the cylinders while the car is parked and not running. This would be pretty common on a nine year old car and should not, in most cases, be cause for concern - See more at: http://community.cartalk.com/discussion/2280708/white-smoke-from-exhaust-upon-cold-start#sthash.05fuptIx.dpuf

If it's blue-white then What you might be seeing is oil burn-off from leaking valve guide seals. The next time you have the oil/filter changed, have a high mileage oil installed. - See more at: http://community.cartalk.com/discussion/2294478/white-smoke-coming-from-the-tail-pipe#sthash.jVo0zDhw.dpuf

My car oil goes down and smoke from exhaust


It's burning a lot of oil. You'll have to have the engine overhauled to fix it. Did it just start smoking and losing oil? Might be a broken oil ring. It is a bluish smoke out the exhaust? That's a sure sign of oil burning.

My truck is burning oil like crazy. im always toping off in between oil changes up to 4 quarts. i dont see any oil leeks! its a 97 ford expedition 4x4 with a 4.6


This is indicative of worn piston seals, or faulty head gasket - where the oil is burned in the ignition of the gasoline.

Worn piston seals will show in blue exhaust smoke when under heavy accelleration or start-up.

Klx 110 started smoking grey smoke burning oil there is also oil on the end of the exhaust pipe. bike still runs good.


If the level of engine oil keeps going down (even in very small amount), then it shows a problem with piston rings. Hope it helps and let me know if you need more advice. Please don't forget to rate the answer it helps me, thanks!

My blaster 200 is blowing alot of white smoke


I agree, Too much oil in the mix. I run at 40:1 at the moment but have also used 50:1 in the past with no problems.
Drain the fuel tank and re-fill with fresh 40:1 mix.
Tip the bike over on its side to run out the carb.

Good Luck.

Sparks and burning from exhaust, no control over speed.


You have a unique problem caused by excessive oil and carbon build up. The sparks are from excessive oil burning, as is the smoke, and not being able to shut the engine down or contol it is called pre-ignition. There is so much carbon built up inside the combustion chamber it is acting like a glow plug when it gets red hot.

Beyond that I can't say how or why you are getting the excessive carbon build up, other than from the oil.

Double check the oil level. Maybe somehow the engine is being over filled?
