redryder Posted February 25, 2007 Share Posted February 25, 2007 My good riding buddy is a bit timid, and asked me to post a question for him. He changed to Mobil 1 two oil changes ago in his 01 1100RT. Just a couple of weeks ago we did his 24K service. While we had it apart we replaced the Bowden box which was causing his idle speed to be erratic. All went well, but now it sporadically smokes like crazy when he first starts it up. Not all the time, and sometimes when it's been on the side stand, and sometimes when its been sitting on the center stand. I checked the air cleaner and there's no oil in the airbox. It only does it when it's cold (first start of the day) and as I said it doesn't do it every time. The oil level is at the mid range in the sight glass. Any suggestions? I guess I should tell you that it runs very strong, with a good strong pull throughout the tach range and the top end is still there. No complaints from him other than he is now the proud owner of a 90 horsepower mosquito sprayer. Link to comment
