When I start my z it'll smoke, sometimes a little sometimes alot. After being idled for a few min sometimes it'll go away and sometimes it smokes the whole time I ride it. I works think its a gasket but I'm fairly new to this. Any help appreciated
If it's loosing coolant it's a blown head gasket. If it's loosing oil it's likely your rings are bad allowing oil to get on top the piston and burn. The oil dipstick is located on the oil tank right below the radiator.
If you are burning oil, smoke will be blue ish. If you are burning coolant, it will smell kinda sweet. Tighten your bolts for anything involving oil or coolant. If you see dampness on the side of your block, then yes you need a gasket. Or if you are loosing compression. Simple things
