Default Very little smoke

Okay so I just finished riding my 2011 Vegas 8ball and when I get off I start to smell and see a lil smoke. So I trace where the smoke was coming from and it was coming g from the oil dipstick area. So I cut the bike back on and there's no smoke. Then I give it a little throttle a couple of times and there goes the little hint of smoke coming from the dipstick area. Does this mean my oil is burning when I hit the throttle or does anyone have clue. Thanks in advance

You probably have a oil leak in that area and it burning off the hot motor. If you where burning oil the smoke would be coming out the exhaust.

But what if the dipstick is burning oil?

If you didn't add oil before your ride, I would pull the dipstick and check the o ring on it for damage. They usually seal pretty darn good. Check around for leaks, as small as they may be.

No leaks, no oil coming out or around dipstick bcuz I haven't put any in it and the dipstick is in perfect condition with O ring still in tack. I checked very close and the only time barely smoked is when I hit the throttle. Could there be something wrong with fuel line or something???

I would check the PCV hose going into the top of the rear of the engine. Make sure that hose did not come off. I have had mine come off on my bike. If the hose is cracked or stretched out it can come off. It is behind the rear cylinder on the top of the engine over the trans.

I've been seeing the breather L-shaped boot coming from the top of the engine above the transmission (not far from the dipstick) go bad lately. Maybe some oil mist is hitting your cylinder and burning just enough to see and smell some mild smoke. Might want to make sure the breather line is in good shape while checking it out.
