    White smoke, please help.

    Good morning all.
    I've recently got to my self 2002 Yamaha XLT800.
    i saw tons of videos, that when you start the wave-runner on lend even without connect to water, its ok to do it for 10/20/30 sec.
    When i starting my ski, after 5,6 second white smoke start coming out from the back area.
    Is that "ok"? Or should i bee concern?
    ( oil level good, the ski starts with no effort, all sounds good, just the smoke throwing me off.)
    Thank you very much.
    Im new to all water toys .
    Sorry if i spelled something wrong.

    It is normal for a 2- stroke to smoke, and You will see white smoke from evaporating water when running.

    I am betting you are OK.

    My rule on running without cooling water (jet pump not in the water or not using a garden hose) is to run it for no more than 15 seconds. Also, if the impeller is not in the water then don't over rev the engine.
