i do all the work on my bike. i do everything to spec, but nevertheless worry about all work i've done...748. 1200miles since valve adjustment. by is 18k miles old.
1) my horizontal cylender exhaust lets off a chimney effect of smoke once the bike stops running, not much, just a thin stream. its grey, not blue or black. i wouldn't care to much but the other silencer doesn't do the same thing. i have a bad feeling about this one. anyone know anything about this?
2) i always wear earplugs when i ride. tonight i didn't and i noticed a sound similar to the fuelpump priming when ignition is on, but a much quieter whiring. is that normal?
3) i put in the FIM for my Termis, my gas mileage is about half to 4/7 what it was. is that normal? could that be related to the exhaust smoke?
4)lastly, is there a remedy, other than buying a new one, to fixing a runny oil filter?
the bike runs just fine...but i'd like to prevent it from running bad. help please, or don't and give me an excuse to by the 853 or 855 kit
