How much oil? Does crankcase loose oil on regular basis? Probably needs new rings at minimum.

I would check the air filter and valves. Might be some kind of restriction so your sucking oil past your rings. My rings are worn on mine and I just get blowby through the crankcase but no oil in the air.
