Anybody have any info on recent otd prices in the Southern California area?

I was told a while back by a dealer that their cost is only $100 below the $4,499 retail. Hard to believe.

Sounds like maybe a bad stator, but I am thinking you replaced it? Could be ignition coil I suppose?

As for the smoking, it may be valve stem seals, an/or valve guides going bad. An 85 XR6 I have...

Carbs

Not to bust your balls RZ Rob, but the XL was built to be a dual sport, the XR was Honda's true dirt bike.

I don't know how long you rode with water in your oil, but the oil wouldn't have been doing it's job so you may have done some serious damage.
