Question about 1982 Honda GL 1100 Aspencade Gold Wing
You are dealing with a rich condition when you get the white smoke. If you park the cycle on the side stand , then start it you will get the traditional puff of smoke which goes away after a minute. In your case you have either a sunk float or stuck/dirty/worn float needles. Ethanol fuel is very hard on black plastic floats and has been known to ruin them on a regular basis.The floats and needles have been replaced on all three of my GL1000's. The only proper fix for the condition you describe would be to pull the carburetor rack out the motorcycle, disassemble, clean the carburetors, and replace the both the floats and the float needles. This should restore the GL back to smoke free, except of course when you park it on the side stand.
