Hey so every time I crank up my bike I would ride for a little and when I would come to a stop I would notice smoke coming from the radiator/fan area. Today took the plastics off and it started smoking a minute or two after firing it up. Then it stops after a few seconds. Any suggestions? Might not even be a problem just making sure

Does it smell sweet?

Coolant leak.

Otherwise it could be oil.

Oil that needs to be changed wouldn't be leaking.

If the oil level is above the top of the little window when the bike is standing upright then yes, too much.

However, friends are often idiots. Too much oil wouldn't cause a valve/head gasket to leak.

Well that certainly doesn't help. It should be somewhere in the middle of the glass.

But that probably won't cause a leak.
