Any Thoughts one whats wrong with my DRZ400S

Recommended Posts

2003 DRZ400S

This morning near my bike transformed into a smoke generator and lost all power at the end of my six mile ride to work. No sounds were heard. I parked it after pushing it the last 1/2 mile to work. An hour or 2 later a friend took a look and guesses I blew an oil ring. Here are the facts, Oil at the proper level, plenty of water, no water in the oil or out the exhaust. It will startup now but smokes bad. It will go to the dealer in the morning. (They are closed here on Mondays here). The bike only has a couple thousand miles on it.

Thanks for any help

It sounds like its broken :lol:

Hey, I'm the resident smart*** around here :applause:

But you are correct in that it does sound like it is broken :banghead:

Smoke or steam? What color? What does it smell like, coolent or oil? You say you didn't hear anything unusal before or even now when you start it?

As Johnny 5 would say, "need more input"

I'd stop starting the bike then and tear the cylinder off and see what the rings look like. You don't want a piece to totally screw up your cylinder.

i agree. it sounds like oil is getting past your rings. get them out before they tear up your cylinder wall.
