Check that your engine oil is clean(not contaminated with water). If you pull the dip stick out with oil on it you could put the oil coated dipstick into an open flame (lighter) for 3-5 seconds if it pops or crackles its wet.if it just smokes a bit its ok. A cold engine will do this fume-steam thing if the humidity is right.Once they warm up it usualy turns nearly clear.Make sure the bike is not exposed to rain, or cold to heat transitions.Some water from the tailpipe is normal,all gas engines can do it.If oil is dry and you dont have water from a cooling system dissapearing,(yours is air cooled) your probably ok.

I have found 3 speedo and tach clusters ,2 of them have the gear and signal lights with them, I have forgotten what they came off of. Where would you usually look to get numbers to identify what bikes they are for?

When performing a evap smoke test, should smoke come out by the top of the gas tank


When you're doing a smoke test, any smoke that shows reveals the problem area if you are doing the test properly. If the smoke is showing near the top of the gas tank, you have a leak in the tubing or the vent valve is not closing (if it's in that area - you didn't provide make, year, model).

1996 suzuki bandit 600, I start it up, and after about 30 seconds gas starts leaking from a tube that comes out of the head and goes into the top of the airfilter box.


Fuel mix is escaping either due to the oil level being too high, usually when diluted with fuel from an overflowing carburettor Or if the engine pours out white smoke at the same time, it may be due to duff rings ie the crankcases are being pressurised by gases getting past the rings on compression stroke

I have white smoke coming out my pipies and the only way i can keep my bike running is to blow air into the vent tubes on the carbs, the other problem is that i have gas coming out my number one carb? how...


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.

99 cavalier Smoke coming out from under dashboard!


now this may be a long shot... but i had a similar problem on my cutlass. but it wasnt wiring...... it was from the tube running from the head of my engine...... the smell and smoke were coming from hot oil coming out of the crank case vent tube and then being sucked into the air inlet for the heater/ ac.

since a electrical wire's protective cover is petroleum based as is oil.... they smell very similar
