How much oil is in the bike ?

YZ400's always blow a little oil out the breather (usually a small patch on the ground after a ride).

If it is blowing a lot out of the breather it is either overfull with oil or you are pressurising the crankcase which is probably due to leakage past the piston rings.

i put 1.6 courts into it i got that out of the book. i rode the desert 100. when i was done there was some blow back on my frame & swing arm. & i had to put in about a 3rd of a court to top it off after my first 50 mile lap there is no motor noise or piston slap to indicate bad rings
