any bike that hasn't run in a while will smoke etc., i'd take it to the dealer to resync the carbs if needed and to do a routine tune-up on it. I know its easy stuff to do yourself, but with an older bike I would just spend the $300 and get the full job. Just my two cents unless youre a really handy mechanic :)

+1 And with a bike that old, check out the "Old School ZX-6R" Section. They are much more knowledgable on that side about your type of bike and can give you better suggestions.
