Re: Another exhaust smoking question
hmm. sounds like it's running rich for sure. Possibly not enough spark to the spark plugs, fouled spark plugs ( not letting the engine get up to operating temperature each time you start the bike, then turning it off before it gets up to temp ), or not getting enough juice to one or more coils possibly. Possibly a bad ignition coil/s. You probably already know, but always let your bike get up to operating temperature before shutting the engine off... that will keep your spark plugs from fouling.
First i would check the primary wires going to the ignition coils - make sure they are on tight. Also i have heard if you get water around the coil cap area it can cause a misfire problem. Check all the wire clips, especially on the ECU to make sure it is on tight. If that doesn't fix the problem test the ignition coils with an Ohm meter according to the Honda manual test procedure.
Maybe someone here has a better idea than i do, but currently this is all i can think it would be. To me it just sounds like you need to get out the multimeter and start doing some tests. Personally i doubt there's anything wrong with the Fuel Injection system - unless it's a bad O2 sensor or bad throttle position sensor.
I'll leave this open to others who may know more.
