so i recently bought a 2006 outlaw 500 and love it, did a oil change about 2 weeks ago using 10w40 lucas semi synthetic........ started it for the 2nd time in two weeks today and noticed when i rev it up itll smoke. Did some research and found out its diffrent then anything ive ever had and it takes 0w40 full synthetic :werd: so now i was wondering what i need to do to get it to stop smoking?
i was gonna change the oil and filter tonight and see if that fixed it, any advice is greatly appreciated!

White smoke is usually coolant. Smell like burning coolant?

May have a head gasket on the way out, or leaking mechanical seal on the water pump, etc.

Probably haven't had it long enough to know if it's consuming coolant?
