    The only time I have heard of a camshaft going out is when the wrong oil filter was installed.



    And how could the rings fail so soon? You mentioned new valves -- if kept properly adjust they are bullet proof! If the valve stem seals weren't replaced that could account for the burning oil.



    An 11 year old bike might need new fork seals........get some ALL BALLS seals and you shouldn't have to do it again forever as long as you don't overfill it.



    And the muffler on my bike is being replaced too only it is an '87. Search ebay and get a used one.



    Keep fixing it. Eventually all will be well.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    @Tony i have the right oil filter, so i dont know what could it be, and about the rings i dont know... i was fine, till one way it felt but slaggy? xd checked the oil and there wasnt a lot left.the valves vere done by self, and then i took it to the shop to do it. i ve just lost my job and i me spending rest of my money on that bike list for todays shoping :camshaft, camshaft sprocket and chain, chain tensioner, some gaskets, and carb inlet, and as i have apart i will have a lot inside the carb, give it a good old clean. but i think that will be it... i cant afford to spend any more money... looks like i ve picked up the doggy one ;(
