I realize this thread is a couple months old, but most GL's will smoke from using the side stand. If you shut it off before putting it on the stand it is much better, and the by-passing oil get's worse the higher the temperture climbs. The center stand is best, but don't use it on warm or hot pavement if you don't want to see your bike on it's side due to sinking.
