Strange. Bluish white colored smoke? Pull the spark plugs and compare the one on the right to the one on the left. Is the right one darker/oily looking?

Ok, 17hp Kawasaki I guess? I think they came with a 17 hp twin water cooled engine, or single cylinder air cooled engine, both Kawasaki. What color is the smoke? Does the oil smell like gas?

air cooled single cylinder, the oil does not smell like gas. The smoke is a heavy white and will lay down in the grass . These engines have a strange oil system on them and I was hoping someone else had this problem.
