Hi, it sounds like your engine is burning oil, most likely through the piston rings. the first test you need to perform is a leakdown test on both front and rear cylinders. Any bike shop should have this tool. What it does is pressurize the top end of the engine once the engine is set at top dead center compression, you need less than 10 percent leakage through the engine.

Car running ruff after tran put in.

black smoke is an indicator of too much fuel not burning in the combustion chamber, or too much carbon build up in the exhaust. you might have an injector problem, i.e. 2 much gas overloading somewhere.
