Always turn the droppers off when the bike is not in use. The wells in the bottom of the crankcase tend to fill with oil that has drained down when the bike has not been in use and so when started the big ends dip into these oil reservoirs, displacing the oil which produces the smoke at start up. It also beneficially lubricates the big ends straight away.
