Could anybody explain why there was smoke coming out of my right hand exhaust. What happen was that I went out for a ride, and when I stopped and turned off the engine I noticed that the said exhaust was smoking. I tried starting the engine again and the smoke stopped (it does not smoke when the engine is running), this only happen the once, but since then there seems to be strong fumes coming from this exhaust, the left hand exhaust is fine, its only the right one (front cyclinder I think). Thanks in anticipation of your replies.

first question: is it a new system? new cans sometimes do smoke.
second question: could you be roasting dead critters?

Its probably the waste gases escaping out of the combustion chamber when the exhaust valves are left open. Or as PB said, it could froma new system or a hibernating pine marten in the link pipe

Thanks to both for your replies, regarding the system I have had the bike for one month its a 2001 model and the previous owner did 4500 miles but the bike is in A1 condition no evidence of being ridden hard so maybe the system is still like new. And as for the hibernating pine marten in the link pipe, this could explain why we can't find the hamster!

Are you using an aftermarket can/chip?
Unburned fuel from the combustion chamber that in normal running is burned up by the hot exhaust gasses & so invisible?
I get it too, mostly from the r/h RSC/SL Carbon pipe, and the bike runs pretty rich on the SL chip.
