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

Welcome to da forums...:icon_ devil: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...:icon_gd:

Not getting any spark.... Ate you getting any kind of noise when you hit the button to start it?

Check out the Honda ATV Schematics section of the Forum - you can download a service manual (for a '85 I think), at the end is a Troubleshooting guide for your problem
