  1. Thanks, I actually noticed that when the bike warms up its stops smoking, only when i rev it high does it smoke. That could mean valves right? I know in the original post I mention it smokes continuously, but I did not actually ride it for 20 min and then see, I just let it idle for 10 minutes and thats where i got that conclusion.
  2. Just did clutch and steering stem bearings yesterday, will the bike be just as reliable with the 440? like can the components last with the added power?
  3. Hey guys, ive got a bit of a smoke problem on my 2000 XR400. It started smoking in the summer and progressively got worse, I will probably need to get a top end rebuild done but it i don't to it would be nice. If it is valve seals i can do it myself, but I dont want the stress of putting in new rings as it will be my first time. My bike smokes within 20 seconds of cold starting it, and then continues to smoke constantly even when warmed up, the thing burns through a liter of oil in no time ><. anyways, ive attached a video of it just after startup, let me know what ya think. And what is a fair price to have someone change the rings on it? Thanks
