SOURCE: oil leak from the front of the motor

Its funny you should mention this but yes, I had its bigger brother the GS 850 G , same problem, Apparently, in my situation I did the same thing and went to the shop and let those butchers make it worse !!!, the way i found my leak was by washing the motor with a grease and oil cleaner , strayed the whole motor and wash it all off totally, then I turn her on and let her get to operating temp went for a few mile and came back and checked it, for me it was the head gasket   the guys put on and i forced them to do it again,  I found out later that it was common with the suzi's of that model and ended up doing it myself, I used the original gasket and used a compound called gasket goo and it never leaked through out the 8 years i had it . But before you do anything , surly they gave you warrant y on the work so take it back and demand they do it properly.
Cheers and ride safe

SOURCE: kx250 gearbox/drianplug leaking

There is pressure in the crankcase when the engine is running and when you rev it up this pressure increases. Oil pressure inceases with RPM and yes the oil will get frothy under pressure.

If you suspect the drain plug is leaking then remove the plug and wrap the threads with teflon tape and reinstall the plug, this should prevent the plug from leaking.

you possibly have a bad seal on your crank. Its called a labyrinth seal and it will be on your clutch side because it is drawing in crankcase oil. the other side would make it run lean by drawing in air by the stator. if it is eating crankcase oil and not leaking it, it is most likely your problem. you can do a leakdown test on it to confirm the problem. put the piston at bottom dead center and compress the cylinder to about 10 pounds of air using a leakdown tester or a compression tester hose that can be used to hook up to an air compressor somehow and hold the pressure, but do not go above that because you could damage those seals with too much pressure. Check to see if the cylinder will hold the pressure for a good amount of time on its own. Check for air coming out of the crank vent hose or the oil fill hole. Also dont overlook the simple things like your premix ratio. try 42:1 or 50:1 ratios of gas to premix oil.

1982 suzuki gsx 250 will start but it wont idle so i gave the carbie a clean and blew all the jets with compressed air to no avail. Also will run for around couple of minutes before it comes to a slow...

look at the carb again - the idle jet is small hole at the base of the throat - just in front of the closed butterfly valve - you may have to soak it in cleaner again - dont try to clean it with a wire -- or if you can get a small straw -try blowing into the orifice - if you find resistance - it is still plugged - wash the bike down and clean the oil off the engine - run it and watch for weeping or leaking - you may just have a loose part

My 1991 rgv 250 is blowing white smoke that smells like petrol and running odd at high revs

I think your model is a water-cooled model with a radiator. Likely you have a leak in the head gasket or (hopefully not) a cracked block that is letting the coolant into the engine cylinder making all the white "steam" and stinky exhaust as the coolant burns.
DON'T CONTINUE to run/ride the bike until you fix this situation as it can blow your engine with all that water in the cylinder.
Check the oil... does it look milky or foamy... that would be confirmation that you for sure have a coolant leak into the engine. But you still could have the coolant leak even if the oil looks fine.
You can replace the head gasket if you can still find one available (you bike is a "vintage" machine for sure!) or may wish to find a motorcycle repair shop that works on older bikes. You may have to call around... many motorcycle places do not work on older bikes... check your yellow pages or google for vintage motorcycle clubs in your area... you likely will be able to find the correct place through them.
If YOU plan on trying to replace first the head gasket, and then the whole block if necessary, then please repost with that request.
Hope this helps or at least explains what is going on...

The noise it was making was probably the fuel pump. Check for a burnt fuse or bad relay.
