Consult a Yamaha dealer to verify what the #12 code is. My suspicion is that it is an o2 sensor. This is an emmission control device that is in the exhuast system that has been fouled by the burning of coolant which is what has caused the white smoke. Check the cooling system to see if coolant level is low in the reserve tank and/or radiator. If this is a correct assumption a blown head gasket could be the failure. The question is why? I hope you have some warranty left. Good luck.

SOURCE: yamaha waverunner excessive smoke

White smoke means coolant in the combustion chamber. Most likely a blown head gasket. You will have to tear the engine apart to be sure.

SOURCE: exhaust pipe comes out white smoke when start bike on side stand

Continuous or just for the 5-10 seconds.
If continuous you may have oil seeping past your pistons oil rings or valve guides oil seals.
Check your spark plug see if they are fouled badly (covered heavily and oily) or just covered by oil and sooth lightly.
If 5-10 sec it is normal as the engine is heating up there are normally a little oil seeping past the seals.

White smoke coming out of my yamaha 2008 r6 whenever i start the bike. why is the white smoke coming out ?


Hi, Anonymous your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. WHITE SMOKE on start-up can is usually caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals. Smoke that is constant while riding is usually caused by valve to guide and piston ring clearances that have exceeded service wear limits.
3. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

I have yamaha sniper 2009 and only 4000km in odometer but when i start engine in the morning there is a cloudy smoke come i dont understan why.appreciate you help


If this white smoke comes out of the exhaust for the first couple of minutes after the cold start, then it is normal humidity evaporating. But if it insists then it would be better to check it with your dealer.

White smoke coming out of the exhaust when starting the engine?


Its the problem of oil.The oil is getting burned out. The vehicle is either burning oil or it is moisture in the gas chamber if you notice white smoke from the exhaust. This is a common possibility.but in some cases this white smoke is not due to oil burning.In that case   White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Normally this is a sign of a blown head gasket or cracked head. And  this is not a common problem must be repaired immediately. You must STOP driving this vehicle or you will cause serious engine damage. you will have to get both this possibilities checked.
Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
