just making the photo live
Yes they do look the same,this was about one carb running richer then the other forgot to post it in the last topic i made duh! silly of me will post there too
ok as far as i remember if they carbs were running differentially the color of the plugs would not be the same as it is in the pic they are the same color so i dont think that the carbs are running rich but maybe i am wrong i had this problem once turned out to be the petcock rubbers were shot i replaced them and all was good why not start there
Buffalo, try taking another picture so that the plugs are laying in exactly the same position, and with nothing in the background to draw the camera focus to the other objects. It is too hard to see what you are seeing otherwise.
ok another pic coming up give me a few minutes thanks




OK guys new plug pics


they look the same to me hell mine were a lot worse when i put new plugs in last year i think everything is good maybe a carb cleaning is in order
What kind of gas mileage are you getting?  They both look a little on the rich side to me.  You can't really tell from smelling the exhaust since they mix in the Hbox (unless you've modified yours).
well that has the 4,8 gallon tank and i got 135 miles filled up with about 1/2 gallon left
