What am I doing wrong?!

Do all bikes use oil? my 900RR likes to smoke at over 10,000rpm, ands you can smell oil in the exhuast at anything higher than 8..is this normal? I didn;t think it was, but then my low mileage Ninja 4100kms, seems to smell like smoke when I'm behind her, and she uses a bit of oil..I'm not too bike savvy, I'm better with the small blocks, so i don't know if this is normal!

Re: What am I doing wrong?!

when you say it uses oil, am I correct in assuming you are looking at the oil level and it is really burning oil? Or could it be that the bike is running too rich and thus you smell rich exhaust/see dark smoke?

Re: What am I doing wrong?!

i can tell the difference between oil and rich. The CBR is oil, you can see it at night, and smell it, however, sicne it holds 4 litres of oil, I don't notice much oil consumption. The Ninja, you cannot actually see the oil like you can with the CBR, but you can smell it at high RPMs, and it uses 1/2-1 litre per 1000kms, which is really noticealbe on a bike that only holds 2 litres.

Re: What am I doing wrong?!

I see. Then I'd test the compression. I dont think Hondas typicaly burn oil.

Re: What am I doing wrong?!

Uh... define "use oil"? I surely hope you mean to ask if they burn oil... The answer is, they shouldn't. Two-strokes mix gas and oil to lube pistons&cylinders as the mixture flows through the engine (somebody stop me before my non-mechanical background hurts somebody) but four-strokes have separate lubrication systems and should not be leaking oil into the fuel system. Yes, I'm sure some will leak in but it shouldn't be noticeable...

You should definitely not be going through half litre per 1000kms!!! Something definitely ain't right. Get it checked right away.

Re: What am I doing wrong?!

you ARE putting the fuel in the big hole on top and the oil in the small hole on the side right?
