Pulsar 220 Bike emits little smoke even after Rebuild, how do I fix?

Did you clean the bore REALLY REALLY good with hot soapy water and a brush before assembly? Need to remove all the grit from the honing process. Test by rubbing hard with a white cloth.It MUST still be white after rubbing. If not then clean it again. It will wear out the rings quickly if it's not right. Solvent will not clean it properly.

74' TX500, High idle and White smoke from breather tube

When the carb was rebuilt it was only bench tuned. It is always wise to tune them once installed. the smoke may stop after the carbs are adjusted. However white or light colored smoke is always an indication of oil. It sounds like you may have a small leak. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Rebuilt puffs blue smoke off idle

If it only has 500 miles on it I would drive it awhile before doing anything. It could be the rings just haven't seated in yet.

I have a ford sierra carburateur engine from 1984 1600 l (cc)

Does this engine over heat? If so white smoke and over heat usually means blown head gasket. If the smoke has a bluish tint to and the engine does not overheat then the piston rings are worn out and the engine will need to be rebuilt. Hope this helps, let me know.
