I,m assuming it clears up after a minute, right? if so I dont think it would be a problem, if it smokes like a trashfire then that would get U blackflagged im sure

Smokes like a two stroke? Or smokes like a freight train? Its hard to answer whether or not it will pass without seeing it, but smoke is noticeable visually and by smell at speed. There is a dude that rides Ride Smart trackdays that has some old GP replica that emits tons of unburnt fuel from the tailpipe, following him to instruct might show up in a urine test...

Is it leaking out of the muffler? or leaking from outside of the header? if external oil lean then it needs to be fixed for sure, imagine what would happened if it finally blew out, that happened years ago and if memory serves the three Ducatis behind the guy all went down, do U wanna be that guy?

was wondering why a 4 stroke would be smoking in the first place and still be taken to the track where it would more than likely blow up....
