    That is perfectly normal. I have had this from the first time I installed it and after engine rebuilds. When a little bit of blow-by settles, and then you start the engine, it is just that, it makes a white smoke as it exits. After really hard riding in a very hot day, pop the hood, then you'll also see a lot more. With a catch can in place, and in addition to serving its purpose, it is also allowing you to see the vapors/white smoke. As long as there is not an excessive amount of blow-by, everything is good.
