Smoke from exhaust after crash.
Bike was involved in accident. Sat on the ground for quite a while pictures/investigation... Bike sat at police station for a while, bike sat in garage for a while (both standing).
Started up no problem, but upon warming up smoke starts emitting from exhaust.
Thought maybe oil got somewhere it shouldn't and was just burning off... Not the case, bike has been run for a while. Tore down to injectors/throttle body, everything looks ok.
Smoke has a slight blue tint.
More smoke with rev.
Noticed a loss in oil. Performed an oil change including filter. Only 2 and some quarts came out. Presumably lost at the scene.
Oil had no sign of coolant (h2o + water wetter). Filled to proper amount.
Coolant has no sign of oil in radiator near cap. Coolant levels are ok.
Issue still exists.
Bike sounds ok, doesn't sound like any misfires.
Smoke emits upon warming up. Rev to 5k pushes more smoke though I still wouldn't call it dense, definitively noticeable.
Only once did smoke not emit. After running for about ten minutes smoking, bike was shut off, cooled for 5, started again. At idle it was fine - no smoke...until throttle was opened.
