Check your oil level first, you may have too much oil in it. The grey sludge is nothing to worry about, and is usually caused by condensation forming inside the engine as it cools down, caused by short distance riding, water mixes with the oil, causing this grey thick sludge. I would suggest changing your oil and filter, but mabey before hand, flushing out the engine oil with some cheaper oil, or engine flush. Sometimes the oil going into the air filter, is a sign of to much crank case pressure, caused by worn or gummed up piston rings. Try some new oil, 10W30, and a new filter.

Kx 80 thick oil out the exhaust and white/blue smoke?


Could be bad piston rings but first check your oil in the engine and if its too full this could cause burning oil. Check your air filter and if its clogged replace it as this will do it also.

What is reason of Automobile exhaust black smoke?


Aiki too thick, incomplete combustion. The main reason is the engine overload, lack of cylinder pressure, engine temperature is too low, the air filter clogging, and individual cylinder ignition does not work late and so on. When troubleshooting, it is timely to check whether the choke fully open, overhaul, if necessary; look after the flame from the mouth of the main nozzle carburetor, if oil injection or drip out, then float chamber oil level is too high and should be adjusted to the specified range tighten or replace the main jet; clogged air filter should be cleaned or replaced dredge.

Virago blowing out through air filter


Will, let me tell you the "Old school" way to fix this.(1) Remove all of the spark plugs. (2) Disconnect the fuel lines. (3) Pour light weight oil directly into the heads.(I know, sounds weird) (4) Crank Crank Crank Crank. Until the engine turns smoothly. If the valves were stuck, this should cure it! (5) Blow the oil out by the compression of the engine cranking. (6) Pour alcalhol into the cylindars to clean the oil out of the top of the pistons.(Starting fluid also works well) (7) Again, Blow it out using the compression of the engine. (8) Put everything back together and fire it up! NOTE!!!! Any time you know you are going to store anything with an internal combustion engine, treat the engine in the same way, by pouring oil into, and onto the pistons directly. This prevents seize ups, and helps to preserve oil seals. ^^

When I go at about 40miles(speed ) it's a loud the gears don't stick but the higher the speed the louder it get's need to kind of know what to tell a mechanic is to where to start to look.I doesn't


I would suspect it is a wheel bearing issue, if it sounds similar to a baseball card in the spokes of a bicycle, stays somewhat same pitch just louder with speed that is where I would look. Does noise go away or change when making turns?

Ive got a motorcycle that was wrecked and know it has white smoke from the pipes


Most people consider white smoke to be oil burning in the engine. But that is not always the case. If the carburetors are pouring too much fuel into the motor that can cause white smoke to pour out of the motor. If oil or antifreeze got into the exhaust system , that could take a few miles to burn out causing white smoke. Lets assume the bike was laying on it's side for a few hours. Did you check your air filter and air box to see if they were full of oil. An overlooked air filter clogged with oil may be all that is causing this issue.

Oil leak


Rick, since 1994, Harley has used what we call a "head breather" system in that the crankcase breathers are located in the heads. This was done in an effort to reduce the amount of oil that gets into the air filter. In earlier case breather model engines, the oil would pour into the air filter if the bike had been sitting for a few months. Prior to that, the bike would "puke" what looked like a quart of oil on the ground below the bike when first started after a long period of sitting.

If you'll remove the air filter cover and element, you'll see that the large bolts that hold the breather onto the heads are hollow. Inside the rocker boxes, there are small rubber "umbrellas" that are opened and closed by crankcase pressure. These are designed to allow your engine to breathe without an excess of oil being blown out. Still even though this system is better, a little oil still gets into the air filter. You can either keep this cleaned out or you can replace the "head breather" systems with an aftermarket system that changes the location the system exhaust crankcase pressure from. Also, you can change the "umbrella" seal and put in new ones. It isn't that difficult to do on the front head. The rear head can be tricky since there isn't much room to get to the bolts to take the rocker box cover off. The umbrella seals are located in the center section of the rocker box cover.

Good Luck
Steve

White smoke coming from exhaust when accelerating


Is the white smoke steam or water? If so it is a blown head-gasket. Fix ASAP or you will ruin the engine. Or is exhaust blueish/gray or gray and smells like gas or oil. If this is the case then it could be a fuel injector, spark-plug (or no spark to plug), valve seals, piston ring/s, or clogged air filter.
