i noticed the same thing today at about 3/4 throttle..i'm thinking mine is just a little rich..but i'm gonna watch my oil and see if the level goes down..
how many miles are on you bike?
Black smoke may indicate a rich condition.

Blue/white may indicate oil being burned. (motor probs)
i found out mine was just where i had been riding in a pond and the pipe and engine being wet caused condensation..once it dried out today i've not had any more problems..
not sure on miles but it has only like 60 hrs
