I am new to the forum and have a question. I have a 1971 triumph tr6r (tiger roadster)sadly it is not in pure form, but my question is the bike runs great but smokes out of the right exhaust. carb has been rebuilt and adjusted to perfection timing is correct, any ideas what this could be from? no oil residue per sey in exhaust pipe either. bike does have mkIII unit

Re-torque the head bolts and tell us if it made any difference.

While torquing the 4 inner head nuts, observe how tight they are before retightening. If they were loose, and many of the era will be, oil could be going down one of the head bolts and being drawn into the cylinder.
