1981 XR200R loosing oil out of exhaust.

Recommended Posts

When riding for extended periods of time I loose all my oil out of my exhaust. Drips out of the coupler. But I'm not burning oil not fouling the plug. What is happening and what should I look for? The picture is after a 10 min ride around the block a bit. Its also an old plug. I'm changing it soon.1539788052074.jpeg

Without knowing any additional details, i would take a guess and say the exhaust valve guide is worn and leaking past the valve seal. Something in that area anyway.
Pull the head, remove the exhaust valve spring and valve...and have a look at what yah got.
