im pretty sure i know what im doing, just want to make sure...
so i bought new plugs and managed to finish the WOT plug chop before my rear tube popped.
Its Definitely lean, ceramic was mostly white with some very light tan and gray coloration on a small area. At least it wasn't pitted. There also was this very thin, flaky, gray layer on the little arm of the plug. I think this hints at too much oil in the mix
so I'm gonna try adjusting the air screw in (I'm assuming now that I've seen 3+ other sites that all say the same thing about Mikuni carb air screws)
here's a site i found that shows me where all the important things are on my carburetor: http://www.teamcalamari.com/dox/tekcarb20.html
