Check your valve clearances, especially on your exhaust valves. That's your first step.
If these are the original valves from 2005 then you may have possibly broken a record for longest CRF valves to ever last haha. Just joking of course.
no, I said "its a new top end with 55 hours on it" the original had about 200 hours. I got a new piston and everything. Im thinking that the valve guides were somehow missed, the valve seals are now bad too because of the bad guides and thats why they exhausts are leaking.
I will check my exhausts and intakes tomorrow... been a while since I checked them anyways.

the thicker the better I think, I tried some 80w90 in my four wheeler when it wouldnt start and worked fine

Didnt you post up a thread about running it without oil for 40 sec? Or did you do the topend after this "issue"?
yes that was me. I was going to ask this question in that thread. but I figured its more effective if I make a new one and let that one die.
I did the top end of january 2009. put 55 hours on it since then.
I ran it with no oil in sept 2009.
rode it again sept 2009
now in october 2009 it wont start. ive got a new question that I am going to make a new thread on (quicker response)
