Default 954 blows bluish smoke on decel. oil,confirmed by tech while on dyno today? questions

My bike is putting down 138.3 at the wheel. So its not bad on power. Dyno tech guy said its prob valve seals leaking causing the smoke on decel. Said I could continue to ride the crap out of the bike and feel free to flog it at will as long as I keep an eye on the oil level. It should have no problem running good at all.

Is there anything I can do to keep it from burning oil? What would be my options? Has anyone had this happen to them?

I'd do a compression test dry and wet to make sure it was valve seal.... but, either way, there isn't any quick fix for it. I know there are some companies that make some oil that can supposedly soften up a valve seal, but I don't really think they work.

The only solid, for-sure fix for it is replacing them... sorry to hear. You'd have to pull the head off in order to properly do it.
