I've owned two XR's (1995 XR250 and 1996 XR400) and both started burning oil like crazy after a couple seasons. Anybody know why????

Did you adjust the valves ever?

That sounds kind of odd, I have 5 (yes you read correctly) honda machines. the lawnmower being 11 years old doesn't burn anything, my Foreman450 doesn't burn either after 3 HARD years. We never did any adjustments on them either, does the XR need a regular vavle adjustment?

I adjust the valves each year. Somebody told me to clean the oil cooler because it gets plugged but I haven't done that yet??
