Re: Carb Issues ....

I'll pull the other two out tomorrow , but i'm guessing they will be the same so its looking like a rich mixture . I've never set the carbs up on this bike before so i'll have to check where the mixture screws are set too and maybe start again ....but new plugs are already on the way !!
