Noticed I have an exhaust leak about 1 week ago along with poor performance. Started tightening the bands around the exhaust joints. Stopped smoking for about 1 day. Started next day blue smoke leaking out near exhaust joints towards rear cylinder. Rev to any RPM and there is blueish smoke coming from both slip ons. In 1st gear bike is very jerky in 6th gear bike will surge at times. Very small blipping/popping in exhaust.
Any suggestions? Having compression test done as I speak...
I'm thinking new top end, and valve job? Is it worth to keep this motor or install newer motor w/ less miles.
Weighing out my options right now...Anything helps. Thanks in advance!
hello anyone i have an sp1 2001 andwhen i rev it hard blue smoke comes out,im wonder if its the valve guides or needs new valve,so waht my best shot here,get anew motor or fix this one with 22k miles on it.... thanks.by the way im in san diego.
Are you under load when you rev hard ??? If you are under load and pushing blue...... my guess is piston rings.
Is your oil level good ??? Improper oil level can affect things as well.... too much or too little.
well I ask a mechanic abouit my rc and he told me isthe fuel regulator,i will start from there and see if the smoke stops ,is anyone knows any site to buy it,is a 01 sp1 ,thanks fellas letme know pls I wanna ride that thing badlly.
