    FZ6 fumes from exhaust

    Hi all.. when i start up the bike it produces whitish fumes.. its not smoke.. looks like steam then dissapears into the air. i run the bike for a good 10 mile and it still appears out the exhaust. im just wondering if its due to cold weather and my bike being in a cold place overnight. i have stock exhaust and no mods on the bike. There is no problem with firing up the bike and it dosnt backfire.. splutter or anything.. it runs really smooth.. fuel is not stale as its topped up regular.. so im thinking of maybe due to cold weather.. Any help is appreciatted.. Thanks

    Standard operating characteristics as far as i can tell. Mine does the same when it gets colder, takes a minute or two but it creates a pretty good plume of white!
