If smoke is blue, then it is oil getting into the combustion chamber(s). If it is black, then it is excessive fuel use. If oil problem, then either bad/stuck rings on the pistons, or oil past the valve stems. Check the crankcase venting system. Use 'high mileage' oil. Try a 'ring-free' oil additive. Check for proper oil drain-back from valve covers. If black-smoke problem, clean or replace the air filter.

Hi, Paul 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. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. 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, air filter dirty and clogged, 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 or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

Valve seats need to be replaced. Time to take the head/heads off and have them redone at a machine shop.

Check compression seems to be ok,engine does not smoke when cranked and running,is there another known source for water to enter the engine besides head gasket,by checking compression head gaskets seem not...


I've got 169,000 miles on my 1977 Goldwing and I can tell you, for sure, that you have a bad water pump. When the water pump seal and bearings go bad, it allows liquid from the cooling system to dump right into the crankcase. Mine does this about every 30,000 miles, like clockwork.
What you are going to need is a new water pump and the associated gaskets and o-rings. This is all on the front of the engine, so you will be changing the oil and filter, at the same time.
This is a very time consuming and tedious task, so be ready. But hey, it's still a lot easier than changing the head gaskets!

White smoke from exhaust


Good check you have done.
Good for you head gasket is still good.
Bad stem valves can let the oil leak in to the combustion chambers causing smokes. Since the engine is Shaky on acceleeration, you need to check the compression presure to see if valves not seating properly ( poor compression ) besides the stem valves. Good luck.

1984 gl 1200a smokes after a few minutes of warming up. does not smoke when first started. 44000 miles


from this bit of info i would guess the valve seals are leaking due to the age of the bike. this is assuming oil smoke (bluish), not gas smoke (blackish)

Check the compression before tearing it down - the cylinder with the water will probably come up low.
It's very likely that the head gasket has failed. As a result (or the cause) it's also likely that the head has warped, it'll need skimming before rebuilding the motor
