Default Kawasaki B1 smoke

I just bought and old Kawasaki B1. It smokes a lot..I know these bikes smoke but I've also seen ones that aren't too bad. Any idea what I can do? Is there any kind of filter I can put in or put on the end of the exhaust? I live in Taipei and whenever I stop at a traffic light there are so many people on scooters around me, I hate bothering people with smoke.


here is a picture of it

It's a two stroke. It's supposed to smoke.

Do you mix the fuel by hand or is there an injection pump? If there's a pump it needs to be adjusted. If you mix by hand try some Amsoil. It mixes at 100:1.

See now, right there is what I mean.....the cheapest little two popper you can buy on earth most likely and it has an enclosed chain. Imagine something like that made out of black plastic on a sport touring, standard or adventure bike running an x ring chain and it'd last forever along with the sprockets. Minimum 50k mile chain life and it'd weight 3 ounces.

Sweet looking little bike!

I wonder if you can get Amsoil in Taiwan?
