burning oil after new rings installed

Recommended Posts

my bike is burning oil after new rings were installed it doesn't burn it at idle but when you throttle it up it blows clouds of blue smoke. is this because the rings are new? i took it to a mechanic and just got it back :smirk::banghead:

He could have installed a ring upside down, not cut the proper ring end gap on the rings or oil skirt.

As pointed out not normal....

As to why..well your post leaves to many unanswered questions to hazard a guess at this point.

WhY were new rings installed?

Just rings?

What was the condition of the cyl? Piston?

How were the rings installed? What brand? On what piston?

Poor ring seal due to wrong install (oil control expander ends overlapped, oil control ring ends aligned, compression rings upside down, cyl in poor condition, not deglazed... There are many possibilities)
