It's a 2 stroke engine and was a real racing bike when it came out. A little smoke is normal for 2 stroke engines...have fun with that classic!

Problem of Oil dropping from silincer of a dirt bike need solution please I need help am i putting alot of oil on gas

Well if you putting too much oil in the fuel it won't run at the right temperature and will make the bike run weak as it dilutes the fuel.a motocross bike is run at about 25ml of 2 stroke oil per litre of petrol.lots of bikes leak black sticky oil from the exhaust it means it Running a bit cool usually or just too much oil.

I have rcently bought an 1991 xj600 it was involved in a accident and has some damage but looked cosmetic mainly just chipped fins and broken footpeg/indicator. I have been riding it for a while and now it...

STOP RIDING IT! You have a few moderate issues going on that need to be fixed as soon as possible! If black smoke is coming out of your exhaust, then you probably need your carbs cleaned, and need to check and see if oil is some how making it into the cylinders. Oil leaking from the air cooler means you have a break in your radiator, either the hoses or the radiator itself. Fortunately these are rather inexpensive, but the longer it goes, the more expensive it becomes. Also check your oil level to make sure you're not below the recommended amount of oil in the engine. This oil does a few things, keeping your engine cool (radiator), keeps stuff moving (pistons and such), and also acts as the lubricant for your clutch plates and gears. For parts I use Bike Bandit but the site also has diagrams that you can use to figure out how stuff fits together. Also the manuals are available online which offer help for maintenance and such. I hope this helps, and if it does, please feel free to give me a thumbs up! Have a great day and good luck! Ride safe!

It may be time for new spark plugs and some carb or injector cleaner...............I would also check plug wires and oil level due to leveling sensors built into the engine safety system.......Hope this helps.

Just bought my first Husky - 610 SM year 2000. Great bike to ride and bags of fun..... Once I get the damn thing fired up that is !!!. Starting the bike from cold is an absolute nightmare - the electric...

I would say that the starter needs an overhaul and a clean out and relube. Be careful when lubricating the shaft, If the oil is the least bit thick or too heavily applied the pinion will hang up. For the rest, starting the bile is just a case of getting the sequence of the start right for that machine. When I got my Velocette (500 cc single) very long ago, it took me over half an hour to start the first morning, and no electric starters. Soon I was starting it first kick every time.

Hello, I purchased a 2002 Suzuki Savage with 800miles that was basically brought but never riden. I'm new to riding myself and I had motorcycle shop check it out but now as I am getting use to it I notice...

Since this bike has been in storage for eight years my feeling is that things might still be a bit stiff and gummed up.The best thing to do I think would be to take it out and ride it and get all the parts freed up and moving again.Do an oil change after a couple of thousand kms and see if it makes any difference.I can't see a bike with that kind of low riding time having any great problems BUT keep an ear on things. Good luck and good riding.

Kick start is stuck will not budge is the piston stuck, is it an easy fix?

well it could be a few diffrent things but always start with the easy stuff and work your way up. did the bike do this while riding? or did you just go to kick start to ride and was like that? the first thing i would do is check your engine oil,is there oil on dip stick? no oil in engine = engine lock-up.....did you notice bike making any funny noises before this hapend? if the engine locked up its not an easy or cheep fix!!!!! looking at $500.00---$800.00 if its locked up!!!!

2005 crf250r trans oil and funny noise

The water pump seal is maybe gone.This would allow water into the trans.Get it checked and also that the bearing hasn,t spun in its location.This may cause the color change.Being a grey color,it may indicate aluminium in the oil.This may be the spun bearing turning in the housing.With what you wrote,I would get these things looked at.I hope this helps you

How to check my oil level on 04 Yamaha yzf 600

YZF600R is a carbureted model. OIL: The oil sight glass is a round window, low on the right side. Very hard to try to see when astride the bike, even if you use a mirror on an extension rod. Have a friend hold the bike level,perhaps, while you check. Oil should be sighted after the bike has been sitting for a time after riding. I suggest using a good 10W-40 regular motorcycle oil (Least expensive around here in Boston is to buy Kawasaki by the gallon at Riverside) I found the pesky 1st-to-2nd shift to be more direct with this oil than with synthetic. I had plenty of opportunity to compare the two types. GAS: No reserve, but as noted, there is a low fuel light, in the row of lights that includes the neutral light and the high beam indicator. You ought to be getting over 50 m.p.g., so you can estimate your 'range' from that. I usually fill up again around the 180 mile period. I think I've seen the low fuel light once in 6 years of ownership. OH: I suggest you treat the gas, on a regular basis, with 'marine' Stabil, not the regular stuff. I have had a 'gummy' Yamaha Virago 250 to care for, that I thought would never clear its fuel problems. Last winter ('08-'09) stored it with the marine Stabil in the tank and run for a while to get it into the carbs also. Within a few minutes of running it this spring-actually a couple weeks ago- it smoothed out and has run fine since. I believe this HAS to be as a result of the treatment of the fuel (run through the carbs before the winter storage) with this special Stabil. It was recommended by Carlo at Riverside- I'll have to remember to thank him for the advice. N.B. I always change the fuel (siphon it out, put that Stabil'ed but 'old' stuff into my car tank, refill the bikes with fresh 93 octane) each Spring.

Bought a 2004 CBR 600 RR how do i check and add oil

Hi there , great bike  by the way.... Okay so you just bought a nice bike, the best thing to to is to assume that it hasn't been done, One thing is for sure the bike shop 9 times out of 10 will not spend much on a trade in and people that sell their bikes usually don't service them before they sell them which leaves you in limbo land so, if the bike is running well then great buy your self a new oil filter and oil , (check owners manual or ask at the bike shop when you buy the oil but if it was me i would used the Motul full synthetic considering the amount of miles the bike is only just run in so she will be a bit tight.
To check the oil it is easy .
First kick her over and let her run until she's at operating temperature, (don't rev it hard or any thing let it do it by itself, once this is achieved , stop the bike , put the bike on its dual stand (if fitted) if your bike has not got one then hold the bike level , now on the motor there is a black twist grip plug , with finger grab face on it , unwind it out and you will see a dip stick , on the dip stick there is two markings , one is the low level the other is the fill level , anywhere below  half way should be topped up no higher than the top mark on the stick, remember the bike must be level,
To change the oil and the oil filter its just a matter of placing the bike on its main stand ( again if your bike only came with the side stand it means that the drain plug will be located on the left side of the bottom of the motor and is usually easy to find) and in most bikes they design the fairing around it so you don't have to remove any covers , and same for the oil filter ,
I hope this info helps you , if you need a more in depth look at how to let me know

Oil issue

it really sounds like you have water in the oil or some other contaminant (bike wasn't run on Castor oil?) You probably want to drain oil into a clean container and flush system before you do serious damage. Bike is geting hot enough to boil off water?
