New wings exhaust smoke?

Post by Buck49x » Wed Apr 13, 2016 2:00 am

Just installed a pair of wings a couple weeks ago and have ridden the bike about 5 miles since. Tonight i wanted to let the bike idle and it idled for about 3 minutes and once I shut the bike off i noticed a bit of smoke coming out of the throttle side pipe. Anyone else have this? I have to imagine that there are just some coatings and some of the packing that smokes a bit in the very beginning? Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Normal, they will also smell for a few miles.

Yes indeed - perfectly normal. And they certainly get a bit whiffy, especially if you store the bike in a garage ... :oops:
