LOL darn those wheelies!!! I just wanted to be a badass!!!
I put everything back together and started the bike up. I used the choke to warm it up. The first time I took it off, the RPMs started dropping so I gave it a little gas but that caused the bike to die. So I repeated the process, same thing. After it really warmed up it was idling better than I've seen or heard in a while, so cleaning out the airbox definitely helped.
However, some white smoke started coming out of the tailpipes. It's not a big billowing cloud, but it's a constant stream. My fluid levels are all constant, I'm not loosing coolant or anything. Combined with the fact that my bike has never died when i've given it has, no matter how cold it is.
Could the smoke be from too much oil? Or am I looking at a more serious problem?my cover blew off ad my bike got hit with a significant amount of rain. Could it be water somewhere it's not supposed to be? The bike has also been sitting relatively still outside for the past month or so.
By the way, the bike has around 7,000 miles on it. The dealership filled the bike with oil earlier this summer, and I just changed it a few weeks ago.
