96 Vulcan 800 classic gas mixed with oil blue smoke coming from exhaust oil running out of exhaust manifolds

Gas mixed with oil? Not on purpose I hope as the Vulcan's ran on straight gas.
If you're getting oil from the bottom end into the cylinders it will probablt be from either the piston rings or the valve stems. Either way, it's fairly major maintenance that most people rely on a shop to take care of. Personally, I would. I had a '95 Vulcan 750. Excellent bike but a bit small for me.

Will a 180/55zr17 rear tire fit my 96 ninja zx6r?

Do you have a question about a ZX6R or a Vulcan 800 Drifter? If you are asking about the ZX6R all you have to do is look at the old tyre and fit one with the same sizing and profile.
