DRZ 400e problem

My bike smokes bad when starting it cold it also drinks oil ever ride

what could be wrong with it


Welcome to TT,

how often do you change your oil?

It sounds like you need new piston rings at the best case. Has your bike any other problem?

i change my oil often every couple rides

no other problems

Top end rebuild time...Minimum of piston/rings..check valve condition

it look like i will have to put top end in it

i was hoping nothing serious

depending on the miles / hours on the bike . fit a new cam chain , recondition cylinder head . have a look at the cylinder works 94mm big bore kit , good value .

do all the loctite fixes at the same time along with the MCCT

ok i will take it apart and check things and see
