should i be worried?

so the last few days ive noticed my exhaust has began to smoke a little, BUT ONLY AFTER RUNNING FOR A WHILE, say like 5 miles... its a white smoke, not very thick at all, but the thing that worries me is it kinda smells, almost like burning rubber or something of that nature. it has just over 300 miles on it and im scheduled to take it in on wed. for the 300 mile tune up... should i be ok to keep riding it til then? any ideas what may be causing the smell?

Re: should i be worried?

What ratio (oil-to-gas) are you mixing?

Re: should i be worried?

i think the ST is oil injected

Re: should i be worried?

i pulled my oil injection out. i think the mix ive been using is about 45/46:1. the reason being i read a lot of threads/info of people saying to use 40:1 and then others saying to go by the manual and do 50:1, so i figured id go in between. is that bad? and if ive been running the same mix all 300 miles, why now is it just starting to smell?
