Yep, seems to be vapour, but i have never observed such a thing ever with my OHC since the last 7 years.
BTW, since the last couple of weeks a lot of threads have cropped up with issues relating to the OHC, what's happening?!

This happens in winters usually in when temperature dips below 10 degrees.
since you are in mumbai so climate wont be that cold.

As for issues with OHC's-with the third generation here i guess they are ageing

I've been to a lot of colder (below 10) places with my OHC during my winter breaks earlier and hadn't noticed this there either!

As far as aging, my OHC can run rings around the NHC anyday! ANHC i still need to TD before commenting... but i'm confident my OHC will be upto the task!

Runing MSD blaster ss 8207 , 8.5mm Super cond cables, bosch plugs.
Are the piston rings due for replacement ? If yes how much will it cost including the labour, and how many kms of low revving after the rebuilt.
Attaching a video for example which shows the white smoke after running from mumbai to pune at moderate speed.
This kind of smoke directly links to worn out piston/rings.

i think this is moisture that you are seeing. defenitely since this disappears after a while. place your hands and see if your hands get moist just like you place on a steamer.

Yes, I know many of the BHP-team preach and practice a look over the shoulder before lane changing, and ORVMs do not entirely remove the need for than anyway, there is still a blind spot, but I do believe that regular use of all RVMs is a part of good driving (Thad's Dad used to say: I want you to be able to tell me what's behind you anytime I ask; you should not need to look first, because you should e looking regularly)

The Left ORVM is particularly good for saving two-wheelers who do not know what that flashing light on the side of the car means.

So my message is, don't not use it because you are not used to it: get used to it!
I agree. You should use it or rather get used to it.

Sorry, What was I thinking?

Default ohc steering wobbles

hi friends my car steering wobbles when i press brake pedal at high speed . no other issues it only pops while pressing brake pedal at high speed. i got the suspension checked and replaced one shock because left tyre had abnormal wear inside. but i didnt got tyres balanced and rotated can this be due to tyres or warped rotors as no issues are seen unless you press brake pedal

It is definitely a case of warped brake rotors.
