Starting problem

Hello gang, new to this forum but been reading a lot the last weeks.

I have a low mileage 2006 varadero fuel injected and have a problem I cant figure out.
When I start it, it runs, but barely, runs for a few seconds, does not rev, smokes white smoke,
Battery ok
New fuel pump
Good compression
New spark plugs
New fuel
Good spark
No fi or hss errors

Im pretty sure its fuel related but im now stumped.
Hope someone has ideas where to go to next

Is it an XL125 or an Xl1000V ?

The "White Smoke" could be oil or water.

Oil will smell of burnt oil

Water will leave moisture on your hand if you hold it close to the exhaust.

I wonder what happen if I click on this - Ooops
