    Blow by

    It's possible although if he was a good mechanic he should have measured the cylinder for wear before ever putting a new piston in the first time.

    05 rmz 450 smokes on start up

    Shouldnt be a problem from oiling the piston. Did you replace the valve seals as well? Usually smoking only on start up is a tell of bad valve seals.

    06 kx450f blowing oil

    it is NOT normal for a crankcase vent to just blow oil out all the time. There is a problem somewhere.

    06 kx450f blowing oil

    could be rings, best way to tell is to do a leakdown test, If the rings are bad you will hear air rushing out the vent tube.

    Questions concerning '06 CRF450r

    Just depends on how much its been ridden and what type of riding. If the bike gets ridden every weekend you can plan on replacing the top and bottom end every 18-24 months or so. If its raced hard, you will (or at least should) be replacing it every season.

    05 crf450r valve help!

    shim them first, might as well get as much time out of them as possible.
  10. No real way for coolant to come out of that. Its Prolly that the head gaskets leaking coolant into the oil and the valve cover gaskets letting oil mixed with coolant leak out that hole

    How to fix this little leak?

    Well the check bolt sucks, DO NOT trust it, oil will start to run out after about 500ml or so which is too little oil. Leave the check bolt in and put in about 650ml.If you put in the amount using the check bolt you will notice that the kickstart idler gear has a high pitched whine to it because it is under oiled. 650-700ml in the trans side and you should be good to go.
