Here is a problem that has got me stumped.
I have been riding, albeit not too often, this little Honda. I put it together from boxed parts and the help of a student.
I rebuilt the carbs which are supposed to be good copies of the originals. Adjustments are on the same side so you need a long screw driver to adjust the left carb, but otherwise seemingly the same. I followed the steps of adjustment and they make sense, and it idles very well an 1300-1500. The problem is carbon on the spark plugs. Too rich on the fuel side or light or ill timed/weak spark. I went through the timing, We are dead on F when my test light goes on ( attached to ground and the points) and it is gapped correctly. My Ohlm meeter reads from the stator Pink to yellow 14 pink to white 12 white to yellow 8 at 1400 rpm. not great but seems to charge the battery.
Ideas anyone? Where would you start?

Side note, I wired a voltage regulator in, because the replacement wiring harness did not have the place for one. Perhaps not a US version?
