this is one of them posts , you really wont know for sure but thought i'd ask ?

on a ride out today my mate behind said my bike blow a bit of smoke on hard accel , after cruising for a while ? i asked what colour and how much and he said like puff and that was it and he was not too sure of colour ?

i would have thought this was normal ? (DX 12k)

I have seen this happen on many vrsc's all different models and years.

I am pretty sure its the norm.

It's very possible it's unspent fuel. Running rich?? Also not unusual to have some "blow-by" when hitting it hard, all engines will slip a bit of oil by.
