I just bought a brand new 2009 GSXR 750 that had 1 mile on it when I bought it. I took it around the block a few times and after I turned it off I noticed some white smoke coming out of the exhaust, just kind of lazily escaping from the exhaust. Is this normal with new bikes? I am hoping it was just some kind of coating burning off or dust, I have no idea how long it sat around before I bought it. It didnt smell like burning oil, it had more of a chemically smell rather then a sweet smell. Another note I turned it on again after the smoke stopped and just let it idle for awhile and gave it a little rpms and the smoke did not reappear. I'm hoping this is completely normal, but I'm just paranoid. Thanks.
If it's the Oem-exhaust there's no wool near it. Though my smoked a little on the first ride and then it stopped. My guess is the same as yours a little oil/dust that gets burnt. The after-market exhaust I put on a couple of months later (german cheap-shit exhaust to crash with on the track) did smoke the first 50 miles then no more.
it's perfectly normal, they are burning all the greaser b/w the joints on the pipe and the header, it'll go away after 2nd or 3rd ride. I usually just leave the bike running until it burns all of it and then ride. Happen every times you put a new exhaust system also.
Thanks for all the replies guys. You definitely helped to ease my paranoia. I'll try not to breath in that smoke, I guess it wasn't very healthy that I put my nose up to it and gave it a big ol' sniff. j/k. Thanks again all.
