Oil leak

My trx have bluish smoke coming from the exhaust.. My mech told me that its burning oil.. so he says it can be the valves seals.. he recomended me to use a ATP AT-205 Re-Seal Stops Leaks so that we didnt have to open up the engine.. what do you guys think? should i change the seals and at the same time the valves???

I personally wouldn't use anything like that but sounds like you at least have dirt in the piston rings. At the 2014 Baja 500 we sucked some dirt through the intake on a fresh top end and it ended up needing to be replaced.

X2, and I can't believe a Tech recommended this method. He must be to busy or just not wanting the work?

On the basic research I did on this stuff, I didn't find anything that says it's safe for a wet clutch. So, I wouldn't use it. Besides the reasons stated above.
