The best way to control the smoke when you have a bad automatic pump is to do what most other bikers do. Drain the pump and don't try to use it to supply oil to the gas. Instead, add 4 ounces of two stroke oil to each gallon of gas that you put in the tank. This equals the recommended 32/1 mixture needed by the engine. It may take a tank or so to rid the crank chamber of any built up oil but soon the amount of smoke will be no more than anyone else.

How much was it smoking previously? Too much smoke (oil) is a whole lot better than not enough smoke (oil). If you are mixing the oil and gas then cut back on the mixture. Obviously it is out of balance. Put 1/2 gallon of raw gas in the tank to cut the mix. After a tank or so you should get the balance back.
You need a new shift shaft and probably need a new shift lever due to the bad splines. You can try the JB Weld but I suggest that you go ahead and drill the lever an shaft then put in a cold roll split pin from the hardware store. You have nothing to loose since the shaft and the lever are already toast.

There are several possible causes; fuel mixture is too rich, air filter is clogged, or worn piston rings and/or valve guide seals. The latter, however, will most likely produce blue smoke - under acceleration means worn rings, blue smoke under deceleration means bad valve guide seals. Also make sure that the crankcase vent is not obstructed as this will tend to force oil up, past the rings and into the combustion process.
Generally, an examination of the spark plugs will give you a good clue as to what the offender is. Black, sooty spark plugs indicates too much fuel (clogged air filter or mixture too rich). Oily spark plugs means worn engine parts, as mentioned above.

May be running too lean or too rich. Check the color of your plugs, black dry and sooty means they are rich, white with blisters lean.
