Jason,
If it is happening only in the morning/first start of the day then it is fine as some water vapour get condensed on the exhaust. And it is this vapour that gets exhausted in the form of smoke/vapour. Unless it is a black smoke there is nothing to worry about. Black smoke means that there is some oil being burnt. If so, then put a finger in the exhaust (cold one). If the finger has black wet soot then the rings need changed.

Testimonial: "cheers mate gentleman i just brought a lemon it was only 3000$ i think it is black smoke oil burning .do you think rings and adjusting valves willdo?"

  • Rinoo Kumari Sep 28, 2010

    Is it that wet soot? If yes then valves may not do. It is due to rings gone. To confirm if the oil level drops after you have driven it a hundred miles or so. Check milometer before you start the test. Then check again after you have clocked hundred miles. If the oil level has dropped then it is the rings that need a change. May be just the oil scrapper ring (not all rings). The point is that if the oil scrapper ring does not scrap the oil from below the piston on its way down then the residual oil in the cylinder get burnt with the gas and produces black smoke. If this ring is fine then it scraps the oil fully and no black smoke.

When I start my car smoke comes out of tail pipe for a few seconds water all so coming out


Water and vapor (steam) coming from the tail pipe is normal and will stop after a few miles when everything is hot. That is one of the reasons exhausts need replacing as they rot with rust and is more evident on cars that only do low mileage as the exhaust does not get hot enough to boil off the water and it sits in the pipe slowly rusting it away. What you see as smoke is probably steam and is more evident on cold mornings. If the car is not using oil then I wouldn't worry.

09 yamaha r6-Steam or white smoke on start up lasts for about 3-5 minutes


Hi, 123gevans 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.

Black smoke and soot coming out of the exhaust pipe


Black smoke is caused when the mix of fuel and air becomes un-balanced. Normal mixture is 14.5 parts air to1 part fuel. When the fuel to air mixtures change because of a malfunction the mixture can go as high as 14.5 to 2 or 3, two to three times the proper amount. The black smoke is the excess fuel generated from the rich mixture and can be cause by one of the following:
  • plugged air filter
  • Shorted or stuck fuel injector
  • Failed fuel pressure regulator
  • Vacuum leak
  • Shorted ECM Sensor , scan for any problem codes if possible.

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.
