engine smoke is this normal?
I know the basics blue=burning oil, black=to rich etc....i just recently started up the s3 and did a few revs and it puffs out a little puff of grayish black smoke. Im not familar with fuel injected engines so is this normal or what, bike only has 4500 miles and am running full synthetic oil. I should add that the engine wasnt very hot..the guage was barly past the top cool mark. Could it be the injection giving the engine more fuel for cold starts? kinda like choking a carb. It smoked just like i had a choke pulled out and reved it up. It doesnt do it at idle or anything...i just took it for a spin, got it up to temp and it doesnt do it nearly as much. I think it might be a little on the rich side. thanks
