if your bike is producing blue smoke there is simply to much oil getting by the rings and this is not normall , the dirt trackers that i have done engine work for have battled with the same problems on the xr 750 with nikasil bores for years some times they just would not seal and the only solution was to disasemble them and hone the cylinder with a ball hone and it generally took care of the problem ,or you could have a problem with a pourus intake port and sucking oil from the top of the engine .i just produced this situation with a customers crf 250 head i got it to thin at the top and a whole formed letting oil into the port .these heads are very thin in there casting there always a possibility of a pourus casting if all else fails with rings and piston may be cleaning the head and coating it with epoxy over the intake ports would cure the problem it may even add some insulation value to the intake port increasing performace by keeping the mixture cooler Ron RHC
