I have not dismantled my transmission and I hope not to. If the answers to these questions are what I think they are I will not have to. I have studied drawings of the transmission but they do not answer my questions since the drawings I have seen show just the case or just the gears and not how the two fit together. So, here are the questions;
1.) Does the transmission oil stay in the right hand side of the case so that the center of the case is oil free.
2.) Are the clutches all on the left hand side so they never get any of the oil poured into the transmission.
3.) If the transmission is overfilled will transmission oil get into the center of the case and soak through the center gasket, getting into the crankcase, so that there is extra oil getting into the piston to cause smoke.
The reason for these questions is that the smoke coming out of the exhaust is a bit thick and white. I just got the bike so I do not know the cause yet, and with riding the smoke is getting less noticeable. What I am hoping is that the transmission was overfilled causing the excess oil to work its way into the cylinder, and that my refilling the oil to the proper level will allow the problem to fix itself. (That is once the oil that is where it is not supposed to be is used up.)
Any insight would be appreciated.
