Honda Hru216 Smoking
#1

Recently purchased a brand new Honda Hru216 machine & it smokes on the initial start every morning.The machine runs well the rest of the day not using any oil.I have had it back to the dealer where they carried out compression tests etc and cannot fault the machine.Just seeing if anyone else has struck this problem or may know where the issue lies.

mine done that from time to time too when it was new..  I have over 100 hours on it and its fine now...  I'm guessing the valve seals just need to bed in .. 

I wouldn't worry about it
