Puff of blue smoke on deceleration. What can it be? Already changed oil, filter and spark plugs. It gets a little better when bike warms up but still blows little blue smoke.

Valve seal/guide
I pulled out the plugs and they have some oil on the threads and carbon on top. I was thinking maybe the piston oil ring is worn. So this is the deal. I need this bike to last me this whole season at the track, will this problem get worse in time? What can I do to slow it down?

Also I forgot to mentioned. This bike was sitting in back of a yard for almost 2 years without starting. four season's sitting outside in new York city climate. Could it been neglecting the bike damage the valves? I bought the bike this way I have no idea if it was doing this before the bike was sitting in a backyard. I got this bike up and running last week I was hoping within time of running bike it will clear up and valves will start to seat and seal correctly

FWIW, I have never seen mechanical engine issues get better over time, only worse. How much and in how long are variables I could only guess at. Letting anything sit for an extended period of time exposed to the elements can and will cause issues.

My first thought was piston rings. You're getting blow-by and burning oil (??) Rings may seal up a bit better once warm im guessing. Will only get worse if so.

I pretty much knew that was gonna be the answer I'm just disappointed with the bike. Previous owner is a dummy for leaving the bike neglected outside for so long..smh. so a good used cylinder head should fix this problem or rebuild the valves, what ya think?

We all different in what we would do, me I like tearing them down so I would turn the negative into a positive, I'd have the head off valve seats cut with a nice bit of porting I'd deck the head with a thin gasket fit all new valve seals & through some bigger cams with springs get a void filter & system a good tune with flash & go ride happy! You gotta get that head off even if it's rings you gotta see.

That's a good idea but I don't know any reputable motorcycle machine shops around my area that would do that work.
