White smoke is coolant.
What exactly needed rebuilding?

the exhaust kinda smells like peanut oil almost like a micro sprint car type exhaust... i bought the bike without forks and the guy i got it from told me it just needed forks and a speedo to get it on the road... so far all i have done is put the forks on it

sounds like a head gasket..we are pretty close to you, bring it by the shop I'll check it out for you for free.

So it didn't need a rebuild at all...

You need to do a compression test to rule out a head gasket or head crack.

A small amount of oil is normal as it comes from the crankcase breather.
I can't picture the hose you mean but it doesn't sound right to me.
Can you get pictures of it and where it connects?

where the radiator hose connects to the thermostat on the back of the engine under the fuel rail there is a small 3/8 inch hose that connect right next to the rad hose on the thermostat.. i have no idea where it goes to but when i plugged up the hose it overflowed my overflow for the radiator

There are two hoses that go onto the fast idle unit on the fuel rail.
