Yup, air-cooled. What kind of smoke is it making, white, gray or blue? And how much smoke?

with a bike that old...you probably have ring or block issues...by determining the color of the smoke, you can determine if it is oil or gas blowby...or... you have a crack in block and water is leaking in...

You need a jet kit....these bikes were renowned for jiggling the needles and jets loose and causing mucho fuel to leak past; running VERY rich........poor idle, smoking and plug fouling after 10-20 miles of low speed running is common on pre-'98's.

Expect a rebuild to last 6-8K miles before it happens again; or switch to Keihin flatslides and be done with it.
