Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others
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.

if it is using oil, then u got stuck rings, which keep running the bike and keep a eye on the oil, or you need the top end rebuilt.

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

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.
