Re: Think it's carb?

I will check compression hopefully today. How do you adjust mixture per carb? The bike ran great hence -eliminate timming, plug wires, low spark, bad plugs.
Where and what is the plenum? Looked it up... still confused.

Re: Think it's carb?

Thank you , it gives me a start. Can the floats cause flooding?
I guess YES! Will check spark to rule a few things out. Bike was running flawless up untill plug foul.
This gives me pause, any more ideas would be helpful as I am very new
to bike repair. All I have is wrenches and common sense.
