bike is smoking

27 posts in this topic

Well i bought a 02 YZ426f at an auction that said the bike was in great condition same with the motor. so i got the bike for $2400 and when i got home i started the bike and let it warm up as the bike got to running temperature a little smoke came out of the exhaust so i thought it was cleaner fluid burning away. well as a minute passed more and more smoke came out and then alot of smoke came out of every hole in the exhaust system.the smoke smells like burning oil. so do you people have any idea what is wrong and if i should fix it or if i should return the bike and get my money back.

Take it back. I paid almost the same amount for my 03' yz450. Save up a couple hundred more and get a 450! I don't know what could be the problem with it tho, sorry.

Sounds like its time for a top end rebuild, it could be the piston rings or maybe valve seals. Is the bike in good shape otherwise?

I Would Return The Bike.

If It Is Burning Oil You Will Have To Service It And You Should Have Got It For Cheaper.

It could be as simple as the bike being overfilled with oil (did you add any?)

If not, it isn't something you should have to deal with on a bike you just bought.

How long did you run it. I am thinking that the engine may had been fogged for storage. Check the oil and the coolant levels. You should have started it before you brought it home

what does fogged for storage mean

Means it was either overfilled with Oil or the inside of the cylinder was sprayed for storing and what you witnessed after starting was burn off. I would get it checked out and if you are still not happy - get your $$'s back.

Then absolutely return the bike and insist on a full refund. Go to small claims if necessary. Don't get into a shared responsibility repair thing unless you think you did something to cause it.
