I am just rebuilt a D10 sport and it starts up and ticks over great, but is blowing a fair bit of oil from the exhaust. Any ideas what this could be. Could i have put an oil seal in the wrong way?

make sure the petroil mix is not too rich and give it a good working in 2nd and 3rd to clear it out, try undoing the drain screw in the crankcase and see if there is any residue, tighten the exhaust clamp as much as possible,

Hi.
Hopefully you have not put an oil seal in the wrong way round. As the engine starts and runs OK then there is a good chance that all is well.
It would be a good idea to run the bike for a while and see if the gearbox oil goes down.
It could be that it is just burning off excess oil from the rebuild or that there is too much oil in with the petrol.
What petroil ratio are you using ?
Good luck.
Mike.
