I have a kawasaki fr651v that has oil leaking out of the left exhaust port. What is that probably going to be?

How urgent is it to get either the piston ring or valve stem replaced? Can I keep using it for now and get it fixed at the end of the season, or would that be too long to wait?

My stander has a kawi. I'm always seeing tiny drop of oil blown out of the exhaust. I've been told by more than one that for kawi this is "normal". May be why I'm always putting oil in it. Not a lot but I do have to top it off weekly.

I've got 6 mowers with kawi's, all but 2 need to have added oil weekly.
One of them has to have a couple oz every day. Been that way since brand new in 2016. Keeps the oil fresh ;)
