As always, meanwhile I put may garment on.
As never before... my bike started to produce that smelly grey oily smoke we all know someday must happen... but not with 45.000Kms on the clock...

I immediately released the choke, despite I was sure the smoke will keep going out of the exhaust, but... actually it stop. Then I put the engine @4.000rpm and no smoke. Then I put it @5.500rpm, this time riding to my office, and nothing!

What the heck is going on??? I know must be a reasonable explanation, and I hope it's not a severe damage...

What do you think, guys?
Thanks in advance for your help...
Unburnt fuel maybe? The manual says to operate the choke only for a short time.. Why would you wait till it get's to 1bar?

Ah sorry:) I thought I'm in the orange crush with the LC8 with the line above

But anyway.. on my LC4 I only operate the choke for about 20 secs.
