Smoking TTR125LE

Recommended Posts

My '04 is about 5 months old and it's used exclusively for mini supermoto racing. Over the past 2 months there has been progressively more white smoke puffing out the pipe when I get back hard on the throttle while on the track. I've noticed this on other TTR125's that I've followed.

Anybody else experience this, and I'm guessing it's almost time for valve guide seals or rings already? It seems a bit premature to be smoking; I've only got about 20 (paved only track) hours on the bike. :thumbsup:

It would be rings. Should last longer. Use the best oil you can afford.

I've been using Yamalube 10/40 and changing after every ride. Dunno what much else I could've done.
