MV also say only to run 10-60 ..... 10-40 is very different, i just had a smoking issue with my 2010, but that was after riding it hard... it would blow smoke on start up and sometimes when at big rev's

i drained the oil and as said above u should run the oil lower on the sight glass, i run mine now at about 1/4-1/2 way between the high and low marks on the sight glass... and that has so far fixed the problem

i'd be replacing the oil with the correct 10-60 and run it at the new revised oil level
I can also tell u where it goes, the left hand side throttle body, because the bike leans to the left on the stand, the oil from the airbox runs to the left hand throttle body and sits down there so on start up it'll blow smoke
