White smoke from both exhaust gaskets????

Got the 02 R1150rtp cranked and idling on center stand. Have white smoke from both exhaust gaskets. Bike has 120k. Bit the area with some cleaner in case it's residual oil. Other than replacing gaskets any other ideas? Thanks

Run it for a while & see what happens. There is an air passage that runs through the cylinder head from the exhaust port area to back in by the spark plugs (to cool that area), that passage can get water in it then that water turns to steam when the engine heats up.

 

Or someone might have sprayed cleaner or WD-40 in around the spark plug area & the smoke form that can come out the front by the exhaust ports.

Thanks, we're guessing cleaner/residual oil/bug eggs/spiders/spider webs/small rodents are in the area cooking off. The smell isn't an oil burning smell.
