Hi folks, so got hold of a 2013 ninja and it's driven 19.2k kilometers (~12k miles). I rode very rough guess I was revving alot most of that time. I smelled something burning and there it was the white smoke coming out, I'll attack a pic as well. Then was quite of an oil leakage, when I checked the sight glass for oil levels it was overflown and only levels when the bike is tilted down to the left. I parked it at home and rode out after one and half day for ~28km and it got heated up alot and I could feel the heat between my thighs. I'm taking it to a dealership tomorrow for repair but I want to get a rough idea of what's wrong here so the mechanic doesn't rip me off( I'm new and I know folks like to to that).
You can see the smoke here..

If you're seeing white smoke from the exhaust, I'm guessing head gasket?

Did you drain the oil? How does it look? What oil is it? How does it smell?

I think that smoke you're seeing might be coming out of the oil breather. Is the hose 8n place properly installed?

Curious, what was the dealer diagnostic ?
