I just drilled out my exhaust on my bike like a week ago. I have only put on about 200 miles since i drilled them out. Today i went to start the bike up and its blowing out a little bit of bluish smoke. Is this normal? Will it stop? Or do you guys think something might be wrong wth my bike.

blue smoke usually indicates that oil is getting into your cylinders and being burned off. It may just be residual stuff in your pipes that is finally making its way out after you drilled the ends. Honestly, I would just monitor the oil level and see if the smoke gets any worse or not.

How many miles on your bike? If it almost new the exhaust is full of oil from the forming, machining, and assembly process. The smoke like a banshee after rolltest. If you don't have many miles get some on it and burn that stuff up and you shouldn't see it as much.

translated, he says he's put a big bore kit on it, and it's now got 180 hp
I assume he means at the crank, but who cares (those crazy Germans):notworth:

No, I rarley start the bike in the garage and the camera mic is very sensative, It just took me at 1st That right before you started it (when you hear the injectors get ready sounded loud)
