Make sure it's not overfilled with oil.
if this is not the case, then you have excessive blowby, which is what blows past your rings when the air/fuel mixture ignites. there is only one explanation for this, faulty rings, and that's what it sounds like to me. the blowby forces the oil into the vent leading to the filter, and back into the cylinder, where it burns, creating blue smoke.

It could be your valves. My friends mower was blowing a lot of smoke and I think some oil. I replaced the valves and it runs like a dream.
I can't remember the steps to remove and replace, sorry.
If you are mechanically inclined it shouldn't be that hard. The only problem I has was the new valves (keeper or whatever holds them in place) was different than the old one.
You could call a repair shop and get an estimate.
Good luck. Let me know if this any help.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your opinion - now I have a few options to consider as I tackle to problem in the morning. Navytime"
could be any number of things - when you changed the oil, was it really runny? was it way overfilled? if runny, possibly the carburetor inlet needle is not shutting off and gas is flooding the crankcase. overfilled? older kohlersmeasure oil level without screwing dipstick in. puking oil into the air filter housing? could be a blown head gasket. OR, it could be as simple as a bad spark plug, it DOES happen

I had the same problem with my YTH1848XPT . Believe it or not it is simply a dirty air filter....you must remove the filter and blow it out with an air compressor...or better yet replace it. you can not clean it well enough without the force of the air compressor. Mine works great now.
