I have never delt with exhaust tape before. This is old but I don't know when it was put on. Only seems to be smoking and smelling like burning near the engine. Here is a link to the smoke.

Any ideas why? Do I just need to get rid of the tape?

Could it be that the smoke is a result of some fluids that have soaked into the exhaust tape?

I noticed that the coolant overflow bottle is fuller that it should be - or had the engine been running a long time when the video was made?

Also, the bottom of the crankcase is wet with something - looks like oil in the video - and that is next to the section of pipe tape that is smoking. Coincidence?

The bike had been on and rode for maybe 5 minutes. And sat running on the kickstand for another 5 or 10. I just bought the bike after it sat for a year. Just after I cut the video the coolent did overflow out the tube.
It is a 2001 with 30k on it.

I agree the bottom does look like oil i couldn't smell anything or see anything so I cleaned it off. Will see if it comes back.

Should I just run it and let it burn off or try and pull the tape?
