2008 smokes when shifted from reverse
I just bought an 08 Prowler 650 XT at an auction. Changed the oil and it is riding fine but I shifted from reverse to H and it smoked a bit. You could smell burning rubber (seemed like the belt) but it didn't feel like it slipped or anything. I drove in H for awhile and the smell went away but it did the same thing when I tried reverse again. Wondering if I am doing damage by continuing to operate it.
On another note it seems to have quite a bit of blow by in the air filter, but I don't know that it has ever been cleaned and the machine has 18xx hrs. Thanks for any insight.
