Road Star Fouled Plugs

I have a issue where my bike will foul out plugs when it's choked on a cold start. I have found that I was in full choke for two long. I now do full choke for about 30 seconds then 1/2 choke for about 3-5 mins. This seems to help out a lot. Any body else have these issues?

Running to lean. Have you done anything such as exhaust or intake modifcation? You can adjust the air/fuel ratio with a screw on the bottom of the carb.
