Its a little hard to tell without seeing the exhaust color.Black is oil.brown is fuel.If the bad cyl. still has a good plug it may not be oil.Check the smoky exhaust carby.It may be you do not have complete firing on the bad cyl.MAYBE.Does the bike run well once you get the revs up under load?Check for inlet leaks that may change the fuel mixture on the suss. cyl.There is a few more things but start at these things 1st.After a complete rebuild,these problems do start.I hope this helps

Need valve clearences for all valves...

0.0039-0.0059 inch 0.11-0.15mm inlet cold
0.0079-0.0098inch 0.2-0.25mm exhaust

measure and record clearances before removing cams, then will need to get exchange shims if clearances need adjustment, the shims have the sizes etched on them , do not mix them up

What is meant by ' Valve clearence ' ,How to adjust it.

"Valve Clearance" refers to the small gap between the valve lifter and the valve stem that allows the valve to completely close. Remove the Valve Cover and set the crankshaft to the timing marks (only found in your service manual), for each particular valve to be completely closed. Loosen lock nut and set with a feeler guage then retighten the locking nut on the adjustment shaft. Four valves = four adjustments. Does this help?

How do you inspect valve clearence and adjust the valves???

you use a set of feeler guages to measure the gap between the valve and the tappet (the arm that opens the valve) there is a intake and exhaust gap setting. you'll have to do some research to find out what the gap should be for your motor.
