Ride: NCII Fairlane

Location: Bathurst
NSW, Australia

My NCII Fairlane was running fine all good no smoke, changed the oil and all of a sudden it blows smoke on start up and after a while the smoke goes away.

I have it booked in at local mechanic to see what the go is.

I am assuming its the valve stem seals. It's not loosing water or oil, no bubbles in rad, no milky oil, no oil leaks engine bay (while dirty) looks fine.

What would be a ball park figure to have the issue fixed.... I am thinking it would have to be around the $1100 mark as they would have to remove the head etc
