Re: blue smoke at startup
You parked it on the side stand. That in itself will not cause the blue smoke but if you do park on the side stand hold the bike level or slightly right after shut down for a few seconds to let the oil drain from the cylinders. The pistons point down and the oil will leak past the rings and burn on startup.
