Are you sure the smoke is white? White smoke is usually caused by antifreeze burning.(This could be a head gasket)

If the smoke is actually light gray it is oil burning.(This would be rings or valve seals)

If it smokes mostly on startup and then stops when it warms up (It could be a worn valve guide or deteriorated valve guide seal (or possibly several) allowing a tiny amount of oil into one or more cylinders).

If it smokes mostly when you are cornering (It could be too much oil in the crankcase).

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)?

White smoke coming from my suzuki intruder lc 1500


First check carb gasket. White smoke usually mean cooler leeks (for liquid cooled engines)- suspect head gasket. But this is just if smoke coming from exhaust not engine.

White smoke is coming for rear exhaust pipe after start up and sometime after acceleration


White smoke is usually the sign of a blown headgasket.. I would have the coolant system pressure tested before any serious damage is done.

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.

Nissan Sentra 2000 model. Thick White smoke coming out of exhaust


White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event.

Let us know how it goes or if the problem persists. We're looking forward to how things go for you.
