SOURCE: there is a lot of smoke coming outfrom the exhaust pipe- kmx 125

The best way to control the smoke when you have a bad automatic pump is to do what most other bikers do. Drain the pump and don't try to use it to supply oil to the gas. Instead, add 4 ounces of two stroke oil to each gallon of gas that you put in the tank. This equals the recommended 32/1 mixture needed by the engine. It may take a tank or so to rid the crank chamber of any built up oil but soon the amount of smoke will be no more than anyone else.

SOURCE: klx 110 started smoking grey smoke

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!

What could blue tailpipe smoke be from?

Your issue could be a few things. Simplest first would be the PVC valve. Other issue would be valve seals, valve guides or piton rings. The blue smoke is from your vehicle burning oil

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.

Exhaust smoke at idle speed

What color of smoke?

Black means too rich....adjust idle mixture.

Blueish means oil burning...bad rings, bore or valve guides

Whitish means moisture...condensation...should burn off after several minutes, regardless of throttle setting.

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.

750 gsx750f smoking

Bobby, There are two types of smoke. 1. White smoke means that the engine if burning more fuel than what it should. This can be rectified byt adjusting the fuel intake. 2. Black smoke means that the engine is burning lube oil. This means trouble as it indicates the piston rings are going. Specially the oils scrapper ring. Please check from the exhaust, when it is touchable if you finger gets wet soot on it. This the burnt oil. Check the oil level too. If there is need to add oil frequently, then that is bad news. Please visit a workshop.

Ive got a motorcycle that was wrecked and know it has white smoke from the pipes

Most people consider white smoke to be oil burning in the engine. But that is not always the case. If the carburetors are pouring too much fuel into the motor that can cause white smoke to pour out of the motor. If oil or antifreeze got into the exhaust system , that could take a few miles to burn out causing white smoke. Lets assume the bike was laying on it's side for a few hours. Did you check your air filter and air box to see if they were full of oil. An overlooked air filter clogged with oil may be all that is causing this issue.

Reset check engin light

White smoke from exhaust indicates burning coolant. Blue smoke from the exhaust indicates burning oil. In replacing the valve cover gasket for an oil leak, some smoke from residual oil is normal but it would be excess oil burning off on the manifold from the engine compartment, not the exhaust. Hope this helps with your question.
