Thanks to this forum I was not surprised and too concerned when I saw smoke when starting my LT after she stayed on the side stand. However that makes me worried about possible long term damage to the bike. It is obviously not good for and engine to keep swallowing and burning oil all the time even in small quantity. It may also be a problem for the catalytic exhaust. So my question is, how many of you only park their LT on its central stand and should I only use the central stand?
