Welcome to the forums. I would invest in a good service manual. It will have the specs for testing everything.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Welcome to da forums...Degrease/oil the exhaust inside,and out using a good degreaser,and heavy soap first,then run it to see if you're still getting smoke..You may need to do a compression check,and a leak down test to ascertain if it needs new rings,valve stem seals,or a complete top end job..Also,check your oil level,and make certain it isn't empty,or overfilled...
