    Carb jetting unknown. Plugs age unknown.
    Bike runs fine. Responsive and snappy.
    Checked plugs on cold not ridden for a week.
    Googling colour I think to lean and jetting issue.
    But the bike runs good. So I think.
    Thoughts ???

    Pull jets (can do with carb on bike BUT just as well to pull carb and verify needle/clip and the jetting...)

    Might as well get carb jetted right and clean and then new stock NGK 5129 olugs

      Thanks for the info Lug Nut
      I’ll go through it and only then start asking intelligent questions.
      But what are your thoughts on the condition of the plugs ?

        Your plugs look just a little on the lean side to me, but you should be ok. If you make any adjustments then do a just little at a time.

          Lean for sure. Plugs just found out from the old dude who owned it previously are get this… 12 years old. One of those owners that goes by “ if it starts and runs- it fine”
          Yup.
          So I’ll swap out the plugs and will go for a good ride and soon as I get home I’ll pull a plug and see what condition it is in and then go from there.

            If u Wana ride it for alittle an easy plug to pull with taking anything apart is the left back if your sitting on the bike, should be enough room to get a wrench in there, that's what I do

                Most if not all of you guys probably know this. But have a need to give. As I'm taking a lot more from this forum than giving since I joined
                Garden hose helps to place and start threading the plugs

                  I like using a small pc of vacuum tubing because it is more flexible. Just push it onto just the tip of the plug to screw it in and it will slip if the threads aren't started properly to keep from cross threading it will also bend so you don't need a straight shot at the plug hole.

                Ah vacuum tube.. Better. get more of a feel for the cross thread avoidance. Will go with that moving forward.
                Thanks

                  And glue it to an old screwdriver.

                Does it return back to idle quickly? Backfire when you beat the Balls off it. Get hot in traffic? Those would be other signs of To lean. But usually you got a really beat the balls off it like go all the way up to full throttle and second gear and then back off and close the throttle completely to induce backfire

                  Hey Brian, no bike doesn't show any of those signs and I really like the idea of the screwdriver. Another tool I can show my kids and have them say ..whatever dad.

                    Check everything in the carburetor see if it's a aftermarket slide.
