This is not uncommon.
Things to check first would be your fuel mixture. You might be running a bit rich. You should be using a mix of 3.5 percent synthetic oil.
Being a 2 stroke, the tail pipe cartridge needs replacing from time to time, as it does collect oil with time. If the bike is a bit noisey change the packing.
Always remember that there is oil in fuel used on 2 strokes.
Lastly check the type of oil you are using. Mineral oil does tend to be a bit messy as the mixture requires around 5 percent oil.
Most off road stores now keep good LOW SMOKE oils such as Motrex.
Stick to good synthetic oils !

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/pan overfilled.
2. Restricted oil return line to oil tank/pan.
3. Restricted breather operation.
4. Restricted oil filter.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides worn and or seals worn, crushed, missing, or have come of guide and are literally pumping oil through the valve guide.
7. O-ring damaged or missing from oil pump at crankcase junction (also results in poor engine performance). For more information about your issue and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Hi, Ally and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP, or CMP sensor.
5. Carburetor jetted too lean.
6. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
7. Water coolant old or low change every two years.
8. Water pump failure.
9. Radiator clogged, cap loose or malfunctioning.
10. Radiator fans not coming on.
11. Clutch slipping, brakes dragging, heavy load, towing a trailer etc.
12. Idling too long without moving.
13. For constant hot weather temperatures, mountain, or desert riding conditions consider adding an oil cooler and or cylinder head cooler.

Oil coming out of air filter

It is quite normal to have a small amount of oil in the airbox, however exsess oil in the airbox will find its way into the engine and burn hence smoke, remove the engine breather pipe from the engine to airbox and clean then replace, exsess crankcase pressure is caused by pressure leaking past the piston or rings, during detanation, dismantling of the top end of the engine is required for inspection, poss new piston and rebore.

I have a 1996 Yamaha yz80 that oil is coming out the exhaust pipe. I am running 40 to 1 ratio gas oil mixture. Any ideas what may be the problem?

Two strokes just leak oil especially where the pipe meets the motor you could try new oring but seriously only be worried if you dont have oil leaking from exhaust on a two stroke is rule of thumb
