Could be the new plates. Change the oil and clean the filter religiously. See if it changes

okay thanks. it also is fouling lots of spark plugs. do you think the rings could be worn and lets oil by causing the spark plug to foul

Yeah if it's fouling plugs I'd just re do the rings. Maybe a piston if you're up to it but that's not necessary.
What color is the smoke?

I would not recommend glueing one on but I'd rather you buy one instead (:
