  1. Thanks for your input all. I may have confused matters by stating it was white smoke then putting a link to a thread about blue smoke........sorry! 🙂 It was definitely white smoke upon start up, from either hot or cold. Yesterday I carried out an oil and filter change (I had 5w30 in there and have gone back to 10w40) and it's stopped! So weird! could the different grade oil have caused the issue?
  2. Been getting a puff of white smoke on start up but with barely any oil usage. I read this thread, where some with the same symptoms have found it to be either o'rings on the back valve cover or the two o-ring seals on the head covers for the PAIR valve air joints. Does anyone know the part numbers for both sets of o'rings? I live in Spain now and trying to explain to the local dealer in my hick town will not be easy so would rather go in with the numbers. TIA
  3. Sorry for not having come back on this before, moved to Spain and it's a bit hectic, but sunny! 😎 Turns out the fault is related to the battery (don't ask me why or how), new battery, no more issues 🤨 Thanks for the suggestions guys 👍
  4. I'm hoping someone can help. I wheeled my bike backwards with the ignition on but the engine not running. The traction control and engine management lights are now both on all the time. I've disconnected the battery, run it for about 100 miles and turned the ignition on and off a number of times, all to no avail. Any ideas on how I reset the TC or sort this out without a visit to the local stealer?
