I find that if I leave my Scott unused for more than a couple of weeks then the oil that drains down into the crankcase will cause quite a smoke screen on first starting. Once that has cleared then the bike does run fairly smoke free assuming that I have adjusted the Pilgrim pump correctly. It does highlight the importance of only adjust the oil flow after riding a mile or so. However I do seem to over oil as the alternative could be expensive!
