Did you ever adjust the valves?

This was my first thought as well.

I would check compression, adjust the valves, and then check compression again after valve adjustment. That way you have a baseline of where you started and where you're at after the adjustment. post the results and if the valve adjustment doesn't fix it, we can help guide from there.

Loss of power going up hills is normally the driven clutch ramp buttons worn out. Easy fix

I've never seen ramp buttons cause smoke in the airbox

Just kidding. definitely worth checking out, pretty good chance there's more than one thing wrong with it.

Lol

All I'm saying is that if the ramp buttons are smoking, you're either doing something really wrong, or doing something really right lol. No middle ground
