Yea I was told these motors are suppose to be bullet proof!! Who knows when the oil was changed last, I bought the bike back in may and I'm going to change oil soon and switch to synthetic.

Be careful about going to synthetic at this point.it might be a waste of time and money. I would stick with your 40-50 weight oil. There's no benefit to synthetic at this point because of increased tolerances that you have.

Well it is running rich , plugs were dark brown kinda black. That could be the blue smoke issue. Motor runs great no issues just some blue smoke once in a while.

Your prolly right. Lol I did some research today at work and looks like my problem is valve seals or piston rings! So this fall I'll prolly just go ahead and do them both.
