Could that be the cause of the crankcase breather white smoke? I just did the earshave mod and rebuilt the carbs, so could it be that I need to tighten the needle screws on the carbs since too much gas is getting into the oil?
Yep, gas in the oil.

Can be a stuck float, but also check the vacuum line from the petcock, if it's wet, that's a problem with the petcock diaphragm.
