    one cylinder rich one fine

    i just rejetted my carburetor but i have not adjusted the needle.
    i went from a 142.5 up to a 150 jet. i have uni pods it was running fine before, and running fine yesterday. but today after riding it for a little while my engine started stalling out, and "chugging" really slowly, i pulled the right cylinder spark plug and it was solid black, but the left cylinder was gray/tan, what would cause only the right cylinder to run rich while the left cylinder is running perfect?

    thats just a guess. just reminded me of my t120 when i got it running. always fouled one side. turned out to be a loose/dirty connection.

    if it was running fine before the pod filters why not get rid of them?

    it was running fine after the pod filters for the last month or so. i didn't realize electrical issues could cause that, i am certain that is what just caused it, i'll straighten up the plug wires check its spark and replace the plug and i bet that will fix it. if not i'll let you all know.
