1978 YZ80E smoking

Man I cant figure this out. My 1978 YZ80E is smoking pretty good not bad at idle not too bad when I gas it but when I let off it its like a smoke machine and then when I get on it again it blows out smoke and cleans up a little. All of this said it still smokes more than I think it should at all times. Im using yamalube R at 20:1 I just changed the clutch side crank seal and Ive had the carb apart more times than I care to count and I am pretty shure all is good the engine is all bone stock and ran great before it sat for about a year and a half hell it still runs great and idles great. Just smoke on. It hasnt been riden since the smoke problem. I wonder if a good ride will clean it out. any input would be most appreciated.
