i rode yesterday with my petcock off and as i died i turned the petcock on, but then it started to smoke out the right exhaust. it seems to bog down as i idle and smokes heavily, but does a little better as i get going. what is going on???

If it has anything to do with riding with the petcock off, it is very possible that as the float bowls were drained, one of the floats stuck in the down position, allowing the carb to flood. Does it look and smell like gas smoke, like it is overly rich. Try banging on the right side carbs with a screwdriver handle or something that won't damage the carbs, and see if you can free it up.
