your exup is getting stuck, don't try to ride hard if your showing a code 18, you'll screw up your motor with excessive back pressure.

From my experience, white smoke indicates too lean a mixture. Have you added a filter, exhaust or PC3 recently?

code 18 definately has to do with your exup valve / servo motor, did you unhook the servo motor or something instead of just tieing up your exup cables or just unhooking them? the white smoke im not 100% sure of. could be from riding the bike real hard with insufficent oil levels, not 100% sure, never heard of anything like that.

Don't know about bikes, but white smoke on cars is coolant leaking into the cylinders. That would mean a blown head gasket or a warped head.

blown hg would smoke anytime you get on it and lightly while riding, if the smoke is white it usually indicates coolant, along with a sweet smell, blue tint is oil which would be rings or valves and black would be rich on fuel, sometimes a lean mix will give a faint white smoke also but heavier smoke would indicate coolant

WARRANTY that shite thats what its for!!!! yeah they may have it for a while but its better that being stuck with a huge bill because the motor blows the day after your warranty expires
