What's the best oil treatment to reduce/stop engine from smoking??

My bike starting smoking pretty bad on the last ride and I want to make one more ride before I rebuild it. What's the best oil treatment to use? And what oil should I run with it? Honda 420 rancher. Thanks for your advice!

    Yea but the question is it good for the clutch. I know certain treatment additives ain't good in atvs.

    All bs aside, I wouldn't use an additive. Just carry lots of extra oil and a couple spare plugs for when you foul them. Stop and check the oil regularly and keep it topped off.

    Ive seen folks put 90 wt limited slip gear oil in them. When it gets to running temp, it stinks to heaven but it does a good job of slowing down the smoke.

    Yup just carry oil with you most of the additive will eat up the wet clutch.

    There is no pour in substitute for worn or damaged parts. Just bite the bullet and fix it.

    Another OLD car lot trick, sawdust , then mark it down for a quick sale.   My grandfather was the typical used car salesman

    If you can't fix it with a hammer, you have an electrical problem.

    If it doesn't fit, force it, if it breaks it wasn't meant to go there.

    Time to Nut up, or Shut up.

    I'd rather crap in my hand, and CLAP!

    If you can't be a good example, be a good warning
