Sounds like its time for a new top end (piston, rings and bore the cylinder if needed)

Have you over filled the oil? Is it smoking only when first started, during engine rev or all the time? Blueish color smoke is created by excessive oil going into the cylinder.

Try changing the oil and make use you use correct 4 stroke atv oil with all the additives. As oil breaks down, it can get past the rings into the cylinders. If it's excessive, maybe do a compression test.

Worn piston/rings, worn cylinder bore, or leaky/worn valves, seals, or guides can all allow oil to leak into the cylinder. Most likely you just need rebuild that motor. The more you can afford to replace, the better.
