Top End Rebuild

2021 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  3foreman
I have a 2004 450s that I did a top end job on it yesterday, do to it smoking. Is it normal for it to smoke for a while until the rings seat or could I still have issues? The cylinder was in good shape, so I justed honed it, put a new set of rings on and replaced the valve stem seals.

are you sure you gapped the rings, and you have them offset?
it could still have oil in the exhaust system, a ride or two will let you know if it took or not.
Thanks, I hope that is all it is. I'll just have to ride it for a while and see.
