Sounds like damage to the rings/cylinder/piston. Have a leak down test done to verify that.

Also check for a pinched vent hose. If the vent hose pinches off it will build crank pressure and make it push oil out.

It's not your oil change schedule that's in question, it's the procedure. You can overfill an '06 by almost double and it won't show that on the dip stick because there's no room in the oil reservoir for the excess. If you did not drain from both drain plugs, and/or if you used more than 1 liter of oil, it's overfilled. A simple thing, worth looking into.

hi guys i forgot to say that ive only done about 3 hours of riding on this 450 before the smoke started pouring out of the exhaust. the guy that owned it before me loved the bike that much that he sent me a text 2 weeks after i got the bike of him to let me no that it would need an oil change at a certain ammount of hours.the reasons why i got the bike was that it was a one owner bike from knew and that geoff ballard was the guy who serviced the bike when it needed to be serviced.any1 no who he was back in the day.the bike will be getting pulled down sometime this week so i will keep you guys posted
