Yeah. You were right.
I put more than a hunderd miles on the bike and the spark plugs are black.
How do I stop from running rich?
The bike is still original exept for the spark plugs. Original pipe and I checked the carb. Everything inside is original.
Spark plugs are DCPR8E as I couldn't find the 6

Have you cleaned or replaced you air filter? If everything is stock and the jets are stock, then it might not be getting enough air.
