Question about Harley Davidson FLSTS Heritage Springer Motorcycles
I have white smoke coming out of the exhaust ,,,is it the carb needs adjusting or something worse,,i have a harley davidson 1998 heritage springer anniversary edition,,
White smoke could indicate coolant in the combustion chamber. Not likely if you have an air-cooled bike. It could also mean that you are running in a cold climate, if the temp is around 20 or less I would call this normal.
If your bike is water cooled I would keep a close eye on your coolant level and oil level. A blown head gasket could allow water to get into the combustion chamber (causing the smoke) or mix with the oil (even worse). If you notice it using coolant I would have it checked out by a mechanic. If you want to check it yourself, do a compression check on both cylinders. If one is rather low, there is your problem.
