86 Ninja 1000R-Was running fine, started missing out at all speeds, white smoke from the pipe. Has spark to all cyclinders, Fuel to all cyclinders, took resistance on coils-measured fine, took measurements on pickup coils-475 and 510 Ohms, changed plugs, after running it for about 5 minutes pulled plugs, #2 plug was not firing and #2-3 has risidual oil on them. When i first bought the bike about a year ago i changed the oil out to a semi synthetic. Any suggestion?

Check for gasket leaks.. You say it is pushing out white smoke? Check your radiator fluid and reserve tank. You could be leakin some fluid in the cylinder. Do you smell anything when it is running?

Compression check would be key. It might need new piston rings but you will determin that after the compression test
