High oil pressure and smoke... at 650 miles!
I'm not sure if this is the area to ask this but here goes....
I turned 500 miles today after following break in procedure by staying under 3500 rpm's, shifting often, etc... I twisted it a few times after this to see how she runs. Never hit the rev limited, never felt any change..
Today I also put a heavy breather on my bike.
After riding up to bike night tonight to meet some friends I noticed on the way home that my oil pressure gauge was pegged while riding at about 30-40. When I stopped I saw smoke from my tail pipes come passed me...
So I turned the bike off and restarted it in case it needed to reset something but no change. I rode easy and stopped... same thing... Oil pressure gauge was pegged at idle... dropped a little and pegged out again as soon as I started moving...
Anybody ever have this kind of issue with a brand new bike?
