Rich or Lean

Long story short, I pulled my carbs since they were leaking and decided to check the plugs as well.

Looks like the left side is fine, but the right side is a little dark. Almost like dry fouling.

The bike has 108 mains, no washers, and I'm sure my floats are set wrong, as is the idle, and the carbs arent synced really.

So I'm guessing it could be a combo of that. Either way, I'm off to get new plugs and a filter.

But a little help in dx would be awesome.

Although I guess incorrect floats cause richness too...


And now one of the float bowl screws stripped. Guess my luck ran out on them.

Apparently I also failed to notice one of the spark plugs still had a thicker cap on it (the side where the plug contacts the wire). So I'm guess that caused some interesting misfires...

Of course, now that I buttoned everything up, the bike refuses to start. I'm blaming the new plugs, so I'm planning on cleaning the old ones and putting them back in until I can order more.
