Hey all,had a problem for months on end with my brp blowing heaps of smoke on startup and if i reeved it when at idle or going flat chat..This all started after i had new valve stems etc replaced...Recently i rode it on a long run ..some 400 kms..most of the way flat stick along the freeway (145+km'sp/h)..now there is no smoke at all either at startup or ....There still seems to be a slight lack of compression ..as its easier than normal to kickover but apart from that its awesome....any ideas as to why the smoke gone...cheers

The valve seals may not have sealed at the start. Is the bike losing oil??
