Exhaust nightmares

Ok, so here is the update to Oil Woes. I got everything taken care of and have been riding the bike everyday since. Now out of the blue... I am blowing smoke on every start up. It smells horrible like running rich or oil burning in the cylinders. I pulled the plugs to check for fowling and there isn't **** on them just white tips which would indicate being lean.. but my exhaust is covered in black soot like it's running rich... it wouldn't start today leaving work and it's the only moving rig I have. Please help me out. Been reading other forums but it just isn't making sense.... Could be engine flooding but I have no idea. I don't know what this smell is. When I can I will pull the oil and check for debre and hopefully the oil won't smell like gas. Pretty sure I need to rebuild the carbs

Don't worry!!, It's just a bump in the road.
