Re: Couple Of Lt Questions
Hi Ronk, welcome to the site!
I can't comment on the Remus. But, I can on the exhaust. The engine in your K bike has the pistons arranged horizontally and pointing to the left (when seated on the bike). This means that the pistons are facing down hill when the bike is on the sidestand. This can allow a small amount of motor oil to collect in the cylinders. This is what causes the smoking at startup and it is both normal and not a problem in the least. If it bothers you, park on the center stand.
Since you are new on the board, you need to surf around. On the 'Home' page, go to the 'Technical' tab. Look at 'Site FAQ' and 'Hall of Wisdom'... there is much you need to learn about the LT...and most of it is at your fingertips.
I 'm sure someone will pop up with experience regarding Remus!
