piston rings/head gasket/valve seals?
So i just bought an rr a couple weeks ago with 19K miles on it. It has no trouble starting up and i ride it almost every day. But two or three times when i start it cold blue smoke (burning oil) comes out of the pipe for a minute or so then stops when its warmed up. Im leaning toward piston rings because things expand when they get warmed up and theres a better seal. I havnt noticed any on deceleration but then again its hard to look back, so none noticable in my mirrors at lease. I will complete a compression and/or leak down test soon, but im not sure if i can nail it down further because i know ill be able to tell that air is going into the oil but dont know where from. Is there anything i can do to isolate the problem before doing a complete rebuild or new motor? i find it odd that in the dozens of times ive started it cold already, it has only smoked a couple.
ps. it has scoprion exhaust and pc3 (dont know what map, theres no scorpion map i havnt changed it since i bought it)
