Hello :smile:

I had a problem with my GSX-R 600 2011. It puffs bleu smoke on throttle release. When running idle there is no oil burning, on throttle also no oil burning, cold start no oil burning. I was guesing the valve stem seals were failing.

Next, i replaced the engine with a 750, 5000 miles on it. The exact same problem! :serious: I am suspecting the valve stem seals again, and am prepared to have it rebuilt. Could this be bad luck, or am i missing something that could couse this issue?

thank you guys :smile:

(i have a movie but cant post it yet, nog enough posts)

What other mods are on the machine?

Are you checking oil height the way it says in the manual?

What gas are you using?

It has been solved!

The only thing that has not been changed between the engine swaps, the fuel tank with 1 year old gas. Flushed the tank, and tried again. When the old gas was out of the injection, the smoke was already lot less. Drove it, no more smoke :)

:lol

It's always the simplest fix that works.

I hope that you were planning on the swap beforehand.

Indeed, it was not needed! :hammer hahaha

I swapped the engine from a 600 > 750, so there is a benefit. But this was not the main reason for the swap, it was the oil usage..... :serious:

I hope that someone learns from this, is surely did :laugh:
