Default Smoke every now and then

I have a 2006 txt and every once and a while it will blow a little gray/white smoke out at startup. Yes it is lifted and when I drained the oil I tilted the cart to drain it all and put 1.5 qts in it. That helped, and it doesn't do it as often. I did a compression check the other day and changed the plugs(they looked good). The compression was 180 plus. Any ideas? I have heard some people say these engines do this sometimes. Also, there is no oil in air filter. Thanks

I adjusted the valves a couple of months ago. I will redo. There is a gassy smell at low speed and idling. Maybe some carb adjustment is needed.

Does it backfire or spit through the carb at low speed when you let off accelerator when moving?

Usually it is caused from linkage out of adjustment, the carb butterfly need to close before the microswitch does

Thanks Popatop! I'm trying to learn all I can so when it does mess up I have the answer or at least know where to begin looking.
