Smoking after oil change

Recommended Posts

So I just changed the oil in my 520sx that I just got. Using a thicker oil because that's what the bike has had through it from previous owner, now the bike is smoking and I'm not sure why?

does it smoke heavily through the exhaust pipe or breather hose? 

 

Does it stop after running a while or is it continuous.

 

If the smoking stops after startup and runnin for a while its your valve seals, if its smoking all the time and you have oil comin out of the breather hose then you have a bad piston ring.

After an oil change, the bike will smoke some but should clear up soon.  As to oil, you can't beat the Castrol Edge 5-50.  You can get this on sale for around $6.
