SOURCE: white smoke blowing out the exhaust and oil consumtion on r.cyl.

Its most likely your rings. They get worn and start letting oil into the combustion chamber. They aren't extremely hard to replace.

SOURCE: 2002 xr200. just got it. white smoke from exhaust

remove the exhaust and the head cover with the valves, no need to remove piston yet.

check the seals and the piston ring for any damages and replace parts if needed. check your exhaust ports for any leaks and replace seals as well.

SOURCE: my gilera stalker 50,will rev out on the main

Sounds like an air leak between the carb and cylinder. This would lean the fuel/air mix causing a lack of power on hills. It can also cause the bike to rev up by it's self on idle and flat surfaces. If the bike is not over 3 years old you should be able to tighten the manifold clamps and then tighten the manifold mount bolts. The rubber should still be soft enough to re-seal the connections. If over three years old the rubber seals and manifold connections are probably hard and cracked and will no longer seal properly. Just get new seals, gasket, and rubber manifold and you should be back in shape. If not, it is possible the crank seals are the problem. They can go bad and lean the mix. I mention the seals last because it is not an easy fix. I hope this helps.

Kx 80 thick oil out the exhaust and white/blue smoke?

Could be bad piston rings but first check your oil in the engine and if its too full this could cause burning oil. Check your air filter and if its clogged replace it as this will do it also.

Occasional heavy smoke on tickover, but not using oil and oil clean.

HI do you now the color of the smoke
if engine emits white smoke its not burning the fuel
it could be water mixing with fuel = head gasket even tho you
dot have water in the oil
if engine emits black smoke - that's excessive fuel to air ration
check air filter & air inlet to see if clogged

if engine emits blue smoke - excessive oil consumption
cloud be valve seals

My honda starts fine but when i give it revs it smokes and sounds like the chokes full on but its not.

If there is voluminous smoke coming out of the exhaust and the smoke is blue/white, you are sucking excessive oil into the cylinders,meaning that your rings are worn and need replacement. If the smoke is black your float level is too high, your air filter is clogged or the engine is flooding through some other reason.

Ive got a motorcycle that was wrecked and know it has white smoke from the pipes

Most people consider white smoke to be oil burning in the engine. But that is not always the case. If the carburetors are pouring too much fuel into the motor that can cause white smoke to pour out of the motor. If oil or antifreeze got into the exhaust system , that could take a few miles to burn out causing white smoke. Lets assume the bike was laying on it's side for a few hours. Did you check your air filter and air box to see if they were full of oil. An overlooked air filter clogged with oil may be all that is causing this issue.

What would cause smoke to come out the exhaust pipe

White smoke coming from exhaust when accelerating

Is the white smoke steam or water? If so it is a blown head-gasket. Fix ASAP or you will ruin the engine. Or is exhaust blueish/gray or gray and smells like gas or oil. If this is the case then it could be a fuel injector, spark-plug (or no spark to plug), valve seals, piston ring/s, or clogged air filter.

Puchased a rover quick start 6 months ago. No revs

Black smoke should not be coming from your air filter. If however, the smoke is coming from your exhaust this could be the result of dirt clogging your air filter and starving the engine of air, hence causing the motor to run on a rich fuel/air mix. If this is the case clean or replace the air filter element, and keep it clean. Another reason for black smoke blowing out is dirty oil in the crank case, if the oil is very dark brown to black in color or smells burnt then it needs replacing.
