Question about 1979 kawasaki Z 650 SR
No, it is more likely a bent exhaust valve or burned. The fuel flow position may indicate an additional issue with the carb, but the exhaust should not glow red like that- when it does it means there is unburned fuel and burning combustion gasses entering the pipe.
If the bike is hard to start, this can be why as well. Do a static compression test to see if the valves are leaking.

Turn off the gas and remove the float bowl. Remove the fuel line. Remove the float pin and float with needle valve. Do not bend the tang that the float needle sits on. Spray carb cleaner into the seat where the needle valve came from to clear out any trash in the valve casing. Spray the float bowl and interior of the carb. Remount the needle and float back in place and put the float bowl back on. Install an in-line fuel filter. The diagram below shows a 1994 carb Yours will be the same or close to it.

sounds like you blew a set of piston rings. instead of building compression in the cylinder its pressurizing your crank case forceing the oil out the breather into your air box
