Hey I just bought a 2005 raptor 660. It was a good deal, clean and appeared to me taken care of. Well i just installed new brake pads and changed the oil and oil filter. It smokes a little blue and some black with hard throttle. It's not too bad but it does it when it's hot too. So my guess it needs new rings. But my question is what about valve, and carb adjustments? I dont know what the previous owner has done to it. So what should I generally check out on it
Before I really start Riding it?

i would check valve clearance and do a compression test. black smoke is from the carb running rich. does it smoke worse when it is cold?

Well it has only smoked a lot when cold one time. Like this morning I fired it up and no smoke (without hard throttle). When I'm riding and go 100% throttle I look behind me and I see a light cloud of blue smoke. And sometimes when I'm deaccelerating it smokes.
