Still Smoking After Center Stand
I know about the horizontal engine, valves and the side stand creating smoke. When I refuel, I wait while I "disrobe" and then set it on the side stand. Never smokes, but refueling takes only a few minutes. When stopping somewhere else (shopping or whatever), I usually use the center stand and after a long time (hours even) no smoke.
When I park at the house, I always park on the centerstand.
I still (and have for some time) get smoke after extended (overnight) stays. Not 100% of the time, but, often enough to make me wonder what is going on. I don't lose enough oil to worry about, but, I hate the smoke.
Could it be valve seals or seats? I am due for a valve check so I'll be getting in there anyway.
