 Well took more than half a year.  But its all done.  Tweaking and fine tuning is a bit ongoing. I think the oil pump is pumping a bit to much.  Anyone familiar with the auto lube pump? Aside from that Im going to need to find it a new home.  Its now a bit to nice for my son to ride and crash it.  Is 2000 a reasonable price?  I see Honda Trail 90s keep going for that in my area. OH was there someone I think said they make replica stickers?

Very nice & well done. Pumps are adjustable within reason. But smoke won't stop just because adjusted. Oily internals in the exhaust system often makes it look worse than is. Going for a long road ride can have bennefits for the exhaust. Or burning it out works best for a instant fix.

It seems to get fowled to the point it has trouble starting back up after stopping.  That and unbruned oil blows out the back a lot.  More than it used to.  BUT it is nice having a crush washer again on the exhaust.  It used to smoke from there.  now all out the back. 

with only 1600 ish miles the inside of the engine is very fresh looking.  when i took it apart.

Trying to remember the layout of the exhaust on those but my feeling is pull the baffling system out the back then put the complete exhaust & parts in the bonfire & leave it there. Going to ruin any paint or chrome but no easy answer to that, or no answer that'll have the same result as burning.

The oil pump cable adjustment was kind of tricky on some of those earlier models...  some needed a special tool to measure the slide opening.

Other than that, in my experience, rich carb is far more likely to cause fouling.  Maybe you have a more restrictive air filter now or something?

 Blimey MarkT has a good memory!!. Here's a pic of the carb. & by 'my' memory the circle seen on the slide has to be half disappearing out of sight when looking in the carb mouth & slowly opening the throttle. At that point the pump cable roller has lines or dots to align. Then you have minimum stroke to worry about--or first off but doesn't matter. The up & down or call it in & out when revolving the pump plastic roller.
