Re: First time changing brake fluid on this bike - a few questions
You may need to recalibrate the throttle. Disconnect the battery for about 30 minutes. Reconnect it, turn key to on position, but do not start the engine. Twist throttle all the way open, then all the way closed two times, then turn key off. Then start bike up and go for a short ride.
This recalibrates the throttle. It probably won't fix the smoke problem, but when i did it my fuel milage improved be 4 to 5 mile per gallon.
