If it is smoking a light blue then it is burning oil. What you need to do is mic the cyclinder bore and then the piston and find out what the max wear spec is. If there is to much clearance between the rings and cyclinder it will burn oil. First do a compression test. 100 psi is ok but anything below that you need a bore job-new piston and rings.

sounds rich, especially if its a problem when it warms up, was the JD kit a much bigger main jet,might need to try standard main, is it standard exhaust, I assume the air cleaner is clean and good condition, the foam can deteriate over time.Not sure if you have a hot start button or lever, this leans the mixture, if you have one and it helps then its definately rich
as a non related hint I use moreys upper cylnder lube in my WR it starts easier, idles easier, doesnt stall as easy under hard braking, and doesnt seem to get as hot and ping when working hard in tight bush.

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry.
If the bike is running correctly and RPM's through all the gearing range you are probably at the bikes optimum speed range with present set up as is.
If it's down on power or faltering while running we probably need to do some tuning or replacement of power components (Piston & Rings, Gaskets etc....) Check the spark plug after running and make sure it's a cocoa brown color and the jetting should be correct. Check the manual for jetting instructions if the color is off.
The simplest speed increase is gearing (requires some in-expensive parts). Easiest way is to go up one tooth on the primary sprocket and add a master or half link to the chain (if needed) to adjust the length. Would try only 1 tooth increase at a time to test.
In Oregon we many times use the stock primary sprocket when running in the mountains, up one tooth for running in the desert, and up 2 teeth on the primary when running over 100mph down in Mexico. This mostly applies to the big bikes but it's the same for the mini's.
Hope this helps and thanks again for contacting FixYa.
