I don't have a clue as to your location, so I can't guess about your local humidity. But I would suggest the possibility that the cylinder had some light surface rusting, from setting with-out proper storage oil.
The start up smoke may stop or not. And if it uses a little bit, we will call it Normal. 1 ounce per 100 miles would still be great, for a stock bike.
The factory says 31 ounces per 1000 miles is still considered 'normal'.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
