First start,white smoke??
Ill skip over my wet batt problems and get to my first startup. I started it by jumping my batt ,letting it warm up at idle when i start seeing white smoke coming up from underneath. Slight breeze so i couldnt smell anything like plastic mmelting or see any oil drops. So after a minute or so i shut it off,in panic mode as Im still getting smoke. Then i hear a plink,plink noise and under the bike i find a little puddle with 2 moth balls on the ground.When i took the rag out of my batt box i must have dropped them on the exhaust and they melted as the pipe got warmer. After i got a pulse again i managed a chuckle.With the thought that something like this could only happen to me. My m/f batt came in after trying to keep my wet one alive all winter,so now it starts right up,runs good and is smoke free.Ive only had this bike since last Aug. So im still learnig.Id like to thank Mcneuby for pointing me towards those mirrors,got a nice set,now there quiet and rattle free. Also theres a bike blessing today at Ocean Beach,New London,CT today at2pm.I would have posted that earlier but i just heard about it. Paulywog
