I own a 2002 Yamaha v star 1100 classic and just noticed smoking coming from where my exhaust pipe connects to my engine. It smells like burning oil. I hope it's not a blown head gasket. I figured I would try asking before I paid to have it looked at in case it was just a seal. I took out one of the bolts and there's black liquid which looks like oil around it. When I put it back in and started the bike, there was a popping noise coming from both of them and smoking. Please help, if you need more info just let me know and I will provide to the best of my ability.
