If the plug looks like that I will start by doing a compression check.

Maybe open the butterflys on the throttle and look down with a flash light. Will tell you if its completely ****ed at least. Is there oil still in the airbox?

Most likely blew a set of rings on that one cylinder. Or damaged a piston. The only way the crankcase can get pressurized like that is from cylinder pressure. The smoke is the bike trying to burn the oil in the cylinder. Compression test is the starting point. Also check the exhaust for unburnt oil.

^^^^ this. Crankcase over pressure is pressure escaping from the combustion chamber (cylinders). That much pressure is normally from the rings not through the valve guides...


As was mentioned, start with a compression check.

So on advice from the local dealership, I pulled the motor. 'it just got worse from there..

That is the inside of my cylinder.
I don't even know where to begin... they look like they are sleeved am I correct?

New motor. Find a used one, put an 03-05 trans in it, and don't look back.

You gotta pay to play bro. I'm sorry to be the one to break it to you.

And $800 would be steep for that motor. I know they don't come around often, but I paid not too much more for an 08 motor.
