A common problem is hydraulic locking. This occurs when fuel leaks into the cylinder preventing the piston from rising in the cylinder. Pull the spark plug, cover loosely with a shop rag and WITH IGNITION OFF (some bikes starter will spin with the kill switch in the off position, if yours is one of them, keep the kill switch in the off position when spinning motor to clear the cylinder, otherwise, spin the motor by placing the bike in gear and rolling forward). Careful! if it is indeed hydraulic lock, gas will spew out of the spark plug hole creating a fire hazard. Once you have cleaned up and aired out the cylinder, clip the spark plug lead back on the plug without installing it in the motor. See if it spins. If engine does not spin with plug removed, ensure that engine is not locked up by some other means. (seized piston, broken connecting rod, etc.) If all works OK, replace plug and fire it up.

check the drain screw on the bottom of the bowl, check to see if the needle or float is sticking, and check the gasket around the bowl. i also reccomend instaling a 115 jet rather than the 132 honda offers. it's just too much of an increase from a stock 102

the oil pump is on the left side of the motor infront of the starter. if you want to clean the actual slinger attached to the rod then this will require splitting the case

Your piston rings are letting a bit of oil get into the top end. No big worry or concern. As time goes by the smoke may increase or it may not. If it gets offensive then you will need new rings, Possibly a new piston and possibly have the cylinder bored out, ( some cylinders can not be bored ). Just check the oil and keep it at the proper level. Change oil three to four times a year. Not changing the oil is probably what has caused the problem. Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives.
