2001 Yamaha Blaster is smoking. Correct oils

2001 Yamaha Blaster is smoking. Correct oils (unless snowmobile oil makes a difference) in the correct spots. correct amounts, no reason to be leaking from overflow (and it isn't) but is still smoking from exhaust.

Only does it when idling or moving in first or second, higher gears seem to get rid of it.

SOURCE: vectra c 2.2 sri oil problem

Per previous post. A quart in 750 miles would be extremely high.  A Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera driven hard doesn't use this much unless it's motor is toast, and it is practically a race car.  You should expect at most a quart of oil consumption for 3000 miles.  A quart of oil in 750 miles is a quart EVERY OTHER tank of fuel, and would indicate a motor that needed a rebuild long ago (or seals, guides or rings).  BTW, If you can see smoke in the read view, it looks much worse when someone is driing behind you.  STP or changing to the next higher weight of oil are short term solutions that may help you not leave a trail of smoke.
If you need valve seals, maybe that's it,  but if you need guides, the rings are probably near shot too, unless there are extenuating circumstances.

SOURCE: excess white smoke coming from exhaust of TB 75SS string trimmer

This model is a four cycle engine meaning that it does not a mix of gas and 2 cycle oil. You just fill it like your lawn mower, gas and fill the crank case with oil

SOURCE: my blaster 200 is blowing alot of white smoke

I agree, Too much oil in the mix. I run at 40:1 at the moment but have also used 50:1 in the past with no problems.
Drain the fuel tank and re-fill with fresh 40:1 mix.
Tip the bike over on its side to run out the carb.

Good Luck.

Yamaha blaster 2001 starts up runs smokes bad it will hardly pull it self the throttle works good but it seems like it dont

Hi Nathan 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 are worn and or seals are 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, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

My xv 1100 smokes and fouls plug when it has right amount of oil in

If the oil level is correct, about the only thing remaining is worn rings. You can try another brand of oil and use a heavier oil, but it will always come back to the rings having to be changed in the end.

I have a 1997 yamaha 500 vmax snowmobile that the oil pump is not working. And Idon't want to replace it, I just want to mix oil and gas. But I don't know the iol to gas mix . I have contacted several...

The standard gas/oil mix is 32 to 1. That means 4 ounces of two stroke engine oil per gallon of gas. NEVER use motor oil. Only use two stroke engine oil. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

1995 Pantera can't free rev,acts like it's starving for fuel

Hi guy, you told me alot just now. Clean your injectors well, snowmobile 2 cycles all smoke rather heavy for a few minutes after sarting so that is comon.Caused by the oil settling in the chamber after shuting off. If not for this the cylinders would freeze up being dry. You may have some bad oil in injector also if it sat for a time without being started. Just remember, never, ever use starting fuild to start WD40 works well though. Check your plugs for correct heat range and gap, again, 2 cycles are very touchy with this also. Make sure you have proper injection pressure as well as fuel injector pressure. Fresh synthic 2cycle injection oil and go cleaning should solve your problem unless there is major problems with frozzen rings.

Does the yamaha fz 750 use transmission fluid or just the motro oil

The FZ750 uses the same oil for the transmission and crankshaft and top end. All oil is stored in the oil pan below the transmission and distributed throughout the engine by an oil pump.
If you are asking if you need to use different oil for the transmission than the engine, no.
If the oil level is correct for the transmission, it is correct for the whole engine.

My 04 blaster smokes and idles poorly,dies pushing throttle

Hi I am vortash .. firstly 32 - to - 1 may be a tad high I would say ... it would be fine at the same as the ducati ratio 20-to -1 with a good quality oil , you should check that your sump is not filling with oil as this will cause performance problems with backpressure .. but maybe the best thing to do would be to replace the oil pump and run it as it was designed to do ?. I am sure you will get one off the net cheaply or from a local bike breakers .... Regards Vortash
