"Fuel fouling plug"


  

          

1974 850 Commando
RITA ign
Sparx 3 phase 220 watt alt with rect/reg
34MM single Mikuni

My bike has been dry fouling the plug in the right side now for quite a while.
I switched ALL the electrical component and wiring from one cylinder to the other with no result. I've checked all wiring for bad or loose connections. Checked for air leaks around the carb flange. Checked compression. Changed plugs and brands several times also tired different gaps. Nothing I've tried has made a bit of difference. HELP!

Don't know what dry fouling is.
mikunis often do not come with enough cutaway on the slide and it runs very rich at low throttle settings.
a few years ago we had many guys come here for help on this subject and cutaway WAS the problem in more than just a few cases....
