TRx250x smoke? Carb???

The drama continues with my 250x my potential buyer did not want the thing and so now im doing some more stuff to it tires, seat, etc.. It has a bit of smoke to it and its a whiteish color and smells almost gassy.. Is is time to rebuild my carb or the top end?? Maybe jetting the carb could help too? Please help!

Have you drained the tank??? Have you stuck something behind the exhaust to see what is actually causing the white color?? Have you inspected the oil for water?? WHitish smoke is usually condensation which should go away once the engine is fully warmed up,and the exhaust has burnt the condensation out...Light grey smoke is oil,the tell tale beginnings of oil consumption,and is usually caused by worn rings,bad valve seals,guides,worn cylinder...

It smells more less like gas and only happens when i give it gas instead of letting off the gas i got great compression and my oil level doesnt go down so im hoping if i drain the tank and get another carb im planning to put a 400ex carb on it and a full hmf exhuast with disks for tuning so im hoping that will clear it up
