Well, I can tell you that's its not going to be coolant. Your Katana for it's year is only air cooled. Check your plugs and see how they look, see if your burning any oil. When was the last time you had a valve adjustment? Also, try doing a compression check on your cylinders as well. Off the top of my head, that's what comes to mind.

If you are positive the smoke is white then that usually means there is water... coolant... that is being cumbusted. This is not good at all it could hydrolock and throw a rod. Get it checked out professionally. Also make sure you have fresh gas and a fresh plug in it.

When my bike is running I get white smoke from the right side exhaust and the right side also blows harder than the left. What could this be?


IF you are running stock pipes (not "True Duals"), the right pipe exhaust ALL from the front cylinder, and SOME of the rear, and the left pipe only blows SOME of the rear alone.

The stock rear pipe splits, some going to the left pipe by itself, and the rest going to the right pipe WITH the exhaust from the front cylinder.

Now, white smoke usually indicates moisture.
Being a (non-VRod) Harley, that eliminates the liquid coolant, because there is none.

Next up that comes to mind is condensation.
BUT, this would burn off fairly quickly.

So is the white smoke only at first, or even when warmed up?
And if warmed up, is it actually coming OUT of the pipes, or OFF the pipes (like some oil burning)?

When I start my bike, after 30 seconds fuel backs up in the fuel vent tubes and dumps out on the floor. It backs ups thru the air intake, fills the canister on the end of the vent tube, and over flows...


Float is sticking in one or more carbs. To narrow which one it is, drain each carb seperately,measuring the feul in each carb. The one with the most is the one the float is sticking on. Be sure that the top vent lines are not blocked or colapsed.

81 Suzuki gs650 #2 carb floods gas out after start


The float is stuck open in the leaking carb. Remove the float bowl and clean the carb after removing the pin holding the float in place. While the float is out, shake it to see if gas has gotten inside it. If so, you will need a new float or will need to drain the float then re-solder it to seal it up again. To drain the float chances are you will need to drill a vent hole in it to allow the gas to drain. Just solder the vent closed when done.

1974 TX500, high idle, white smoke from breather tube


The idle problem is a lean fuel mix caused by an air leak in the intake system. Bad gaskets /seals on the intake manifold, bad valves, bad piston rings, loose spark plugs, and bad head gasket are all things that can lean the fuel/air mix. The smoke indicates a need for new rings. I would have the cylinders bored then install new pistons and rings. Now finish the top end work by getting a valve job. You should get a liquid fuel tank liner to eliminate any rust problems in the future. Also, install an in-line fuel filter. Google “ kreem fuel tank liner “ or go to www.http://www.4secondsflat.com/Fuel_Tank_Sealer.html


My complements on the well cleaned carbs. Do the work mentioned above an you will effectively have a new engine.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

74' TX500, High idle and White smoke from breather tube


When the carb was rebuilt it was only bench tuned. It is always wise to tune them once installed. the smoke may stop after the carbs are adjusted. However white or light colored smoke is always an indication of oil. It sounds like you may have a small leak. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Oil blowing out of trans breather tube


hi 81 yamaha i am concerned about the fuel smell coming out with the oil. could be the carbs flooding filling your crankcase with fuel? if not it sounds like you have blow by which would cause your crank case to be slightly pressured. this is caused by worn piston rings. do not plug your crank vent. if you leave your vent open install small filter to stop dirt from entering jim

White smoke coming from exhaust


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.
