Question about 2005 Honda CRF 230 F
Its a light thin smoke
Your piston rings are letting a bit of oil get into the top end. No big worry or concern. As time goes by the smoke may increase or it may not. If it gets offensive then you will need new rings, Possibly a new piston and possibly have the cylinder bored out, ( some cylinders can not be bored ). Just check the oil and keep it at the proper level. Change oil three to four times a year. Not changing the oil is probably what has caused the problem. Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives.
