    Unhappy having trouble with my buddies suped 07 rxt

    hey everyone, i have a question. my buddie has an 07 rxt with a stage 3 riva kit. well most is riva it has a riva stage 3 valve train, perhana supercharger, vortech inter cooler and all other kinds of stuff. we were riding yesterday and all of a sudden it started smoking really bad. is was burning oil and it was coming out the thru the hull exhaust. i mean the exhaust is totally moded. we were thinking it might be a stuck valve or the rings might be bad. so if anyone has any ideas please let me know and give me some imput. it was smoking worse then a 2 stroke dirt bike. so we are trying to figure out what it is and if its something simple or have to rip the engine out. also is there anyplace that makes big bore kits incase the engine has to be rebuilt anyways.
    thanks derrick

    no no lights came on and deff was oil i followed behind him and it was deff oil. but last week we had a problem where he sucked something up and his exhaust temp light came on. i mean he flushed it out a couple of times and it went back to normal. but idk what it would be i mean it started burning it really bad. but no oil lights or temp lights came on.

    have you pulled the plugs? have you checked the compression? have you checked the oil level etc.

    sounds like it pops when you first romp on the throttle so the plugs might be a little shot but the oil is fine. the guy who had it before him set it up for racing so its gpsed at 75.2 on a little chop.

    is the ski down on power or rpms? or just smoking? are the exhaust couplers melted?
    could the SC be puking oil into the intake?
