SOURCE: alot ofwhite smoke coming from tail pipe

Not sounding good if white smoke, usually indicates coolant into cylinders via bad head gasket or head, maybe intake leak, or piston rings gone. You, or someone didn't overfill oil by chance did you?
What's mileage & did you have any warning signs or did this just happen all of a sudden.

SOURCE: problem with sound inside engine kawasaki vulcan 1500 when start

You may be having detonation. Switch to premium gas. Do not use gas with Ethanol. Change to a new spark plug > NGK DP8EA-9. Run through a couple of tanks of gas and see if the problem has gone away.
