If the exhaust is plugged or almost plugged, (from previous owner using the
wrong type of two stroke oil), then the engine will blow the seal, due to
internal pressure. It appears as though this has happened and it is burning
the transmission oil. Fairly complicated and expensive repair. Will cost
over $250.00 to have it repaired.

Sounds like engine seal is letting crankcase suck ATFluid into
| ||Purchased not running. Spark plug was oil fouled. Found one broken|
piston ring. Repaired motor. Now it will run for a short time with lots
of white smoke. Drained and refilled oil tank with Honda injector oil.
No help. Looks like trans. fluid. Is their a seal?
Hard to replace?
cyl.......don't know how hard to replace,but you might try adding
TRANS-X from Auto-Zone to see if the seal will soften and re-seal.Just
add the trans-x(about 4oz.of it)to your tranny fluid and run the `ped on
the stand for about 10 minutes.If it works,you saved a seal
replacement.I recommend getting a shop manual for the bike.It evaporates
quite a bit,so after you use it,check the oil level.Now get back to us
so we know how it turns out,okay? Don-ohio
