bike smoking

Postby DevonCbx » Thu Jun 10, 2010 12:47 pm

Hi, although I have received a lot of information regarding my CBX smoking when accelerating and decelerating, I spoke to a mechanic today regarding No 01 cylinder oiling up the spark plug after several hundred KMS. He said to try to add about an once of motor oil to number 01 cylinder. He claims that sometimes this may lossen up the ring.This may stop the smoking. What is anyones opinion on this topic.

Thanks :?:

If your gonna try "oil" . . . . . find some "Marvel Mystery Oil" . . . . . . No B.S. here, it works !

If they don't sell Marvel mystery oil in Canada just pick up some transmission fluid, its the same thing and much cheaper.
