Question about 2001 Yamaha XVS 125 Dragster
Ditto, as Laddie22 says I'd get a mechanic to have a look, it might just be a burn't valve or an oil seal but you might just start something you can't finish and if you take it apart you sometimes find garages get a bit funny finishing a job that someone else has started! If you've never done anything like this before you are taking on quite a big job - no offence, but I'd let an expert have a look!

It could either be engine oil or excess fuel. My best bet is oil.
I would suggest getting an experienced mechanic, motor or motorbike to have a look. Heads must come off. Sleeve must be inspected for cracks and wear. Oil and pressure rings must be replaced and new gasket must be put in for head. If the pistons are worn it sometimes pay to buy pistons with rings allready fitted at reasonable price. If you start this yourself. see it through,

SOURCE: the engine oil is leaking
I have seen this problem on quite a few bikes, but not on yours.
Several things can cause this issue; dirty air filters, bad hoses, overfilled crankcase, rocker box gaskets, and other engine gaskets.
Maybe this info will give you a place to start.
