Yes this is due to heat. Most times the front cylinder exhaust pipe will turn. It gets hot and then cools off quicker. Also the pipes turning can be due to timing and rich / lean carb settings.

Water coming from exhaust of my 1994 isuzu trooper why

Water out of an exhaust pipe is usually just hot gasses condensing on the surfaces of cooler metal exhaust pipes, and is normal. White steam or "smoke" however is in indication of coolant entering the combustion chamber and boiling off during ignition. It is superheated water vapor (more than 212 degrees) and turns to visible steam as it cools when leaving the exhaust pipe. This is the result of a cracked engine block or gasket and can be an expensive fix. Check and monitor your coolant level if unsure of the cause. Also check for milky colored oil on the dipstick - this is a sign of coolant entering the crankcase - also not good!

Oil leak suzuki..Haven't road my 2001 vz800 much.. Turned in on today and starts to smoke out of the exhaust and oil leaking out of the exhaust pipe. Bought it recently.

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.

Why do oil and grayish color smoke come from exhaust pipe when I turn on my tiller

Oil and bluish gray smoke are an indication of either worn piston rings and/or worn valve seals in the engine. This involves disassembling the engine which is a major task and is best left to a professional mechanic who has the expertise and tools to do the job. You might get away with a heavier viscosity oil.

2000 Suzuki Intruder VS800, I noticed while idleing there is a poddle of what appears to be gas and oil from the joint @ tail pipe. What is wrong?

Most likely, this is just water. Especially true if this happens only when the engine and exhaust are cold. Try tightening the clamp more securily at the joint - there are drain holes in the bottom of the exhaust pipes designed to allow this (normal) condensation to drain from the system.

Crome exhaust going very blue when hot 1 much

Chrome will turn blue on exhaust when there is oil present on the chrome. This is a natural transition on new pipes. Try wiping the pipes down so any oil residue is gone. A lot of times new bikes are wiped down with a petroleum based agent to make them rust proof for shipping. The bluing is going to be permanent, you could equalize it by adding some oil to the less blue pipe.

I notice during a routine oil check my Forenza was 1 quart short

Have someone rev your engine. Observe the smoke coming out of your exhaust. If the color is bluish white, you are burning oil. It is an indication of worn piston rings and it should be replaced.

Left exhaust pipe is turning a gold colour for approxiamtely 12 inches from the engine

It is normal. One cylinder & pipe are a bit hotter than the other. It is not at all unusual to see one pipe discolored more than the other.
