so my entire 100km ride i had a burning oil smell coming from my 07 700 grizzly, also saw smoke coming up from the handle bar risers, if sitting for extended time, first start will fill my garage with smoke, and burnt oil smell, i did not measure how much i'm burning.
What should i be checking first, i already adjusted valve clearance

Did you recently tip it over or change oil.

burning oil, not leaking oil

How many miles on it? You can try some some Yamaha Engine X for engines. You could have some ring stickage. But if she is smoking from the top of the motor I would guess you have a leak or bad seal of some kind.
