  • White Smoke When Starting

    I've noticed white smoke coming out of my exhuast a few times when starting my Katana recently. It'll last for a few minutes...usually by the time my gear is on, the exhaust is "clear" again. So far I've only noticed it in the morning so there's a thought in the back of my mind that it's from condensation of some sort. My bike is kept outside but underneath a cover. Should this worry me? What could be causing it?

    All right, thanks again. You've been replying quick to my topics today!

    I figured it wasn't a big deal, but at least worth asking.

      I work 10-6EST weekdays, so I'm on here all the time as well. I don't know enough about motorcycles yet to be too much of a help though. I'm outta here for the day. I'll be back tomorrow!

        Just condensation, i keep mine outside under a cover as well and i get white smoke everytime i've left the bike outside when it's been moderatly cold.

        Nothing to worry about 8)

          Good, that's what I was hoping for. I've still only noticed it in the morning, so this must be the case.

              +2 on the condensation. As soon as I read your post that is what came to my mind.

                White smoke=water
                Black smoke =fuel (trust me on this one )
                Blue smoke=oil
                Yeah , outside under a tarp , most likely dew up in your junk .
