so i recently bought a 2007 honda shadow spirit 750, i rode it around for about 2-3 weeks and it rode great. Now just the other day i go outside to fire it up and i see fluid coming out of the one exhaust i dip my finger into it and it smells like fuel, then i twisted the throttle just a hair and white smoke started to come out. immediately shut it off just in case.. i’m not too inclined on motorcycles so any help would be appreciated

If the bike was sitting for a while it could just be condensation and it would smell like fuel having sat in the exhaust. It could also be a stuck float on one of the carbs. Check your oil and make sure it's not overfilled and smelling like fuel. If it seems fine, take the bike for a ride and bring everything up to temp and see if you still have white smoke or still have fluid dripping out of the exhaust. One way to dislodge a stuck float is to tap the float bowls with the handle of a sturdy screwdriver
