Those with the 2013 models... does yours smoke ?

Just thought I'd ask the question, as I know it was such a worry on the 2012s... do any of you with the 13s notice a lot of smoke during start up?...

Thanks...

can't answer for the 13s but i think this was overrated even on the 12s. i don't think my 12 ever smoked and only recall a few people posted about it here.

Should the question be oil consumption rather than smoke at startup?

CONGRATS! You're the only bastard who bought a 1199 that didn't smoke a ton within the first 1000 miles...NEXT PERSON PLEASE!

Every 1199 that came out of the dealer here, smoked. I saw several of them in person.

It's a non-issue regardless. The reverse is actually true, I'd worry if it didn't.

If yours didn't smoke then keep a very close eye on it, there have been a number of bikes that haven't smoked which have had to have the entire engine replaced because they seized.

Apparently not smokin is a sign that the engine isn't lubricating properly and this can manifest itself several thousand km later.

Tickin time bomb!

Mine is a 2013 and now has 1500 miles on it. Had a puff of smoke a couple of times in first 2-300 miles but not a sign since.

Guess that means mine is terminal and I need a new engine soon ;-)

I guess I'm screwed then. Mine has never smoked. Mine is a 2012 and I bought it in September.
