A buddys' 07 Kawasaki 650 with some 15k miles is puffing out a bit of white smoke when he gets on the throttle hard, and when the bike is cold.

What's the likely cause ?

I suspect a slight leak in the head gasket ? I recommended checking the head bolt torque, and a compression and leak-down test.

Perhaps he should warm-up the bike before "getting on the throttle hard".... :lol:

Yes, I'd also suspect low compression/ring wear.....
