Question about kawasaki Trigger SM 125 Motorcycles
The tight exhasut pipe is smoking a good amount but on the left its only a little amount of smoke could the carbs be out of sync?

White smoke indicates water in the combustion chamber. If the bike is still running okay I would keep an eye on the coolant level, make sure you're not losing any. Best guess is a blown headgasket. You can do a leakdown test or a compression test to check. If your headgasket is blown, two adjacent cylinders should show lower compression since pressure will be leaking from one to the other.
That's the kind of thing that probably won't run for long. Be sure and keep an eye on your oil level too, if you happen to be leaking coolant into the oil you can dilute the oil to the point it no longer lubricates very well.

Does it have a stock pipe,carb,any modifications! If its stock,I would put a new ring and piston in it,it seems like your getting a lot of blowby,also make sure your air filter is clean. It would help if you used an iridium spark plug.

SOURCE: white smoke from one tail pipe
As u know - that smoke is oil . can be cause by restricted breather or oil filter, worn valve guide or seals. or a bad piston ring which seems the most likely if its just coming outa one pipe. A compression test will tell ya if thats it

Blue smoke means oil is burning. The most likely reason is oil is getting past your piston rings because of wear. Run a compression check. If it is less than 150 psi it is time for a rebuild. It may run for a while burning oil and you will want to replace most of the parts anyway so it probably won't cost you much more money to keep running it until it dies. Just keep a close watch on your oil, if you run it out of oil it won't run for more than a few minutes.

SOURCE: 2002 YAMAHA BANSHEE WILL NOT REV
I have a 2004 banshee at the yamaha dealer being worked on.It would not run when i took it up there they cleaned the carbs and put it back together it will start but when you rev it, it holds itself wide open and wont shut down unless you pull the plug wires.they also checked the floats in the carbs said they where ok. they think it is a vent issue with the gas tank or the fuel shut off valve.IS THAT POSSIBLE
