Default White residue? Help

I started up my 08 8-ball the other day and I noticed some smoke coming out by the rear cylinder were the exhaust meets. There was also a white residue collecting on top of the cylinder head? Still can not find out were the smoke is coming from. Any advice please comment.




Stage 1 2231 miles slash cut exhaust

A picture would help, but generally white residue is left over soap that collects in the spark plug area.
And the smoke - did it smell like burnt oil, or was it water vapor? Might check for exhaust leaks too....

When did you wash your bike last? If you rinsed it well the white stuff should have gone away. I think its soap they didn't get rinsed off

Will post some pics when I get home for ya, as far as washing the bike I really dont all out wash it so it shouldn't be soap residue but will check for that. Really makes me nervous leaving it running or riding it smoking like that. It doesn't smell like oil at all. But it def smokes by the cylinder/exhaust? Will post pics later today. Thanks!
