Sorry, whats CC seal?  Going on your description I would be thinking Valve stem seals too. Liner seal normally results in coolant/oil mixing

G'day
The SWMotech stand fits the 955i fine.  I fitted one to my 03 Girly (spoked) about a month and half ago.  No real issues other than getting the springs hooked up.

Cheers Dan

We know, but what about the 885 which is what the OP has got

Engine and Transmission / Smoke Blowing out of exhaust
« Last post by Highliner on May 25, 2018, 03:48:53 PM »
I'm troubleshooting oil smoke out the exhaust.

Previous owner replace CC seal, messed something up, head gasket started leaking, so he replaced HG, bike started blowing oil into the exhaust and causing smoke. sold me bike cheap:)

I started it and ran it a bit, no expensive noise. so I gave it a couple troubleshooting runs, smoked at first startup, stopped smoking after a few miles, checked oil, it was barely on dipstick, added 4 oz. it was full. rode around town...no smoke, took for high speed I-68 run for about 3 miles, was smoking after exiting and at light, pretty noticeable and probably annoying to the guy behind me as I'm revving it up and trying to determine what's up.

Rode it home check oil it was down an oz or two. pulled the tank to check and see if airbox has oil in it (negative). Pulled plugs, they were clean, dry and brand new. so I am thinking the oil isn't going by the rings because it isn't fouling the plugs. So the oil is blowing by the exhaust valves. ( bad EX Valve seal) (no oil in the cylinder during compression).

Ruling out gasket for 3 reasons, its new, there is no coolant in the oil, and the coolant is clean with no signs of oil.

I do wonder if the PO's opinion that he displaced the cylinder liner could bee the culprit but I can't visualize the oil path out the exhaust.

Where do you find the best price for a gasket kit for these things? (2005 995 Triumph Tiger)

I thought I read that the SW Motech would not fit from the 955i - something to do with sump pump.

Hmmm, dunno then but SW Motech list the stand for 99-2004, the 955 didnt arrive till 2001 so ??  Also, as I said the Triumph parts fiche lists the same part no for both, but OK maybe SWM's is different

Great report Bill, thanks.

There's a report somewhere around here of when Ed rode his Steamer and I rode my Girly to the 2011 Border run. There was a 2000k day in that run but the Tigers ate it up. Great traveling bikes

Trying to cross reference parts number between the 885i and the 955I is impossible because although the parts are the same the numbers are different.

The major differences are the motor and the headers rev counter and possibly a few electrical bits and bobs.
