New piston and rings but high oil useage why?

Recommended Posts

TTR250 1998.

Just had a reboar 0.5 oversize, new piston and rings. I have been out on her several times and she ran great, did not use any oil at all.

Now after about 300klm she uses half a ltr ever 100klm.

No smoke from the exhaust and no leaks from the engine.

She performs well but is now hard to start and tick over is a problem.

I have had trouble with the carb so tickover may be down to that, I will look at that today.

Can you help about the oil usage?

I get some oil of oil from the engine breather pipe, it fills the over flow pipe on the bottom of the (don't know what it is called but its like a ventury catchment bowl).
