Question about 2005 Yamaha FJR 1300
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.
