Suzuki Eiger ATV smoking after new rings

Recommended Posts

I got an ATV from a guy that ran out of time rebuilding an eiger 400. He put a nerma Piston and rings in. I finished it up and it smoked like a train. I took the head off and honed the walls and it looked like the rings where on the walls, but it smokes just as much. I'm confused what's wrong with this thing.

What year is the suzuki eiger? Are you using the correct oil? From how you describe it, it sounds like oil is getting into the combustion chamber. How's the air filter look, is it oil soaked?

* Added ATV info to topic title and moved to Suzuki forum.

some smoking is normal for a break-in period but if you are getting excessive smoke it could be the wrong size piston/ rings setup, were the rings in the correct order? were the ring breaks alternated on the piston? hope this helps!

I didn't replace the Piston and rings so I'm not sure the sepcs or anything. I got new rings just to make sure there right and I'm replacing the valve seals also. I also got up sized rings if I need them.

I ended up just buying a new jug and piston set and it fixed all my problems. If it's not smoking to bad and you haven't let the engine run for to long I'd let it run for a while first.

      If you are looking for a used ATV for sale, where do you look? I know ebay and craigslist have used ATVs for sales and then sometimes you find local trade publications where they list used ATVs. I was looking online and decided to list out some websites that sell used ATVs. If you know of any additional websites or sources to look for or buy used ATVs, please post as a comment in this topic.
      eBay Motors  - usually has a good selection of four wheelers, ATVs, and Side by Sides and offer seller protections
      Craigslist - usually has more local ATVs, but be careful as there are no seller protections
      ATV Trader - has over 130k ATVs listed by private sellers
      ATVSoup.com - new and used ATVs for sale
      WantAdDigest - Shows local listings of ATVs for sale
      ATV.com - List new and used ATVs for sale
      When buying a used ATV, make sure you do your research and find out the book value of the ATV, look over the condition of the ATV, and as for verification of ownership. Be careful who you buy from and get the ATV checked out by a professional dealer or repair shop if you are baying a high price. 
      Watch our for VIN numbers that are scraped off, this is usually a sign that the ATV was stolen.
