So I went riding with a group of coworkers today and lunch and they informed me that under HARD acceleration (8000+rpm), that white smoke was coming out of my exhaust of the 954.
There is zero smoke at idle, and I even accelerated less aggressively after that and looked back and nothing was coming out.
It isn't missing and seems to run smoothly otherwise.
I figured if something major was malfunctioning/broke (cracked head/block) that would be allowing water into the combustion chamber that would be causing the white smoke, that it would have other symptoms.
Could there be water in the gas I filled it up with this morning and added Seafoam?

Maybe the Seafoam itself is burning off?

Seafoam causes my KTM to smoke on hard throttle.

Gentlemens, thanks for the heads up.
That said, I assume that it's normal for Seafoam to do that and I'm not gunna worry about it.

I think the new Pope got in your bike!!!!:evilaugh:
Well if so, the new pope is a crackhead because the 54 is still a freak.
Just for giggles, I was en route to the gas station this morning and goin about 40ish on a 35mph two lane rd and I thought to myself, 'let me try something'. I went from 2nd to first and got it up to 6500 (which was about 45mph), held it for a couple of seconds then (I didn't blip it but) twisted it. That front end came right up off the ground. :evilaugh:
Granted I only weigh about 158 lbs, but I was also fairly hunched over the tank when it did. I expected it to come up, though it startled me, but it was very stable and I just let off the throttle and it sat right back down.

Damn I love this bike.
I'm going to go out and ride it some more!
