You didn't say what color the smoke was, but even so I'd say that's (probably) not oil coming out - it's soot, or wet soot since the bikes been idle. Normally it gets blown out (mostly) when you ride, but when they sit the moisture in the air can turn it to gooey black gunk.
My best guess.

SOURCE: Oil Leak at exhaust flange

No major problem. The proper mix is 32 to 1 gas and oil. That equals 4 ounces of 2 stroke ENGINE oil to one gallon of gas. Do not use MOTOR oil in the gas. 10w40 motor oil is what goes in the gearbox. Tighten the exhaust flange.

A top ranking please ... Thanks BJS!

SOURCE: i have a 99 vz800 suzuki back firing when i decelerate

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

In the versions we have worked on, almost always, your description indicates too lean a mixture on at least one of the carbs (chances are the one for the front cylinder). Considering that it has not been used for over a year, the carbs would need to be pulled down and cleaned. Old/stale gas would have coated the inside of the carbs with varnish like substance. This would be blocking the ports, holes, jets, slides and definitely, the bowl, walls and floats. Other than the above, the fuel pump/regulator would also have to be considered.

Incidentally, I was made to understand that certain versions has had known issues with the carbs and a recall was done.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Oil leak by exhaust pipe

I am not personally familiar with a 1975 DT250, but here is a general overview. If the bike is a 4 stroke, the oil you observed could have been from the exhaust, however it is more likely that it is from a leaky valve cover gasket or a head gasket. If the bike is a 2 stroke, the "oil" is from the exhaust (expansion chamber). It is excess 2 stroke oil that accumulates. You should reduce the mix to 32:1 or even 40:1 and replace the oring gasket in the opening of the pipe. If in a pinch you can use high temp silicone, but not a good way to go.
best wishes!

SOURCE: white smoke

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).

I HAVE A 2001 HARLEY DAVIDSON ROAD GLIDE ... IT PERIODICALLY BLOWS WHITE EXHAUST ... USUALLY WHEN I STOP AND ITS IDLEING


White smoke means water so there is an internal water leak into your combustion chambers causing the smoke. Possible head gasket starting to leak.... Blue smoke is oil and black is gas as far as the smoke emitting from the exhaust. Have you needed to fill the radiator lately? Good luck.

I hamve a suzuki 2006 reno with only 42k mi and it just started blowing white smoke out of the tail pipe and leaking oil out of the bottom of the motor on the passengers side behind crankshift


get it serviced?
if you dont know what oil leaks are or how serious
then get it serviced now,
stop driving it. or burn up a good (hope) engine.
call a tow truck, is best possible end results.
but
open hood, and turn the oil filter CW to tight.
look for road collision damage under car, first.
google how to tighten a filter, oil, see wix filter page, read.

Oil disappearing from engine no leaks have found


Must be burning oil. If it is not leaking anywhere you are burning it. Does the engine have a lot of miles on it? Might be time for a new one. Do you have blue exhaust smoke from the tail pipe?

What does white smoke coming from exhaust of a 01 'suzuki gsxr 1000 mean when starting only?


For motorcycles with 4-stroke engines: The white smoke from the exhaust means that the engine oil is leaking into the combustion chamber where the petrol burns. ... This eventually means that you have to get your piston changed along with the piston rings that prevent the engine oil leaking into the combustion chamber.

White smoke out exaust pipe and stalling


Any time there is white smoke coming out of your car's exhaust system, it is an indication of a leak. but a leak that is allowing either oil, coolant, or transmission fluid to get into the cylinders. The smoke is from the leaking substance not getting completely burned off like the air and fuel mixture does under normal operating conditions. pull the oil dipstick and see if you have traces of coolant in oil. if so you have either a bad manifold gasket or a head gasket went bad. good-day !

Hi , i have a porsche 928 s2 . when the engine has been running for a couple of mins it starts to smoke from the engine bay , it looks like oil is coming out of one of the gaskets at the top ? help jim


if the oil is leaking onto the exhaust pipe this will cause smoke as the exhaust pipe gets very hot & burns the oil, you will need to find out just where the oil is leaking from & repair the leak by replacing the gasket or whatever is causing the leak.....hope this helps......cheers.

I recently had a 100,000 major service on my 2004 TL. Within a couple days I noticed a pronounced smell of burning oil. I have since noticed a puddle of oil has formed under the car and just today there...


It's probably OK to drive. I imagine they failed to get the oil filter properly seated and you're getting a little leak there. DO BE SURE to check the oil level before you drive it and add if necessary.
