Hello Goodspeed! A great advantage on this forum is learning lots of information about different bikes as well as your own. Even gaining advice or asking about particular issues will allow you to become knowledgeable about how your bike operates, etc. We like pics of your ride too! Ride safe and enjoy~YammyV

Thanks for the replies! Here are a couple pics.

On a different note, I did my first spark plug change last night. The bike wasn't running cleanly. Totally my fault. I had family up on the weekend and the bike was started up and shut down a few times without letting it warm up. I pulled the plugs and they were totally black. With the new plugs installed, I had the quickest start yet. I was glad to fix it since this might be one of the last weeks to ride. Its getting cold up here. (Kitchener, Ontario)

Running the bike for several minutes a few times should not foul out the plugs.

Running it a while with the choke pulled out off the stop could. Could also be a very dirty air filter. If your air filter is not white like printer paper get a new one.

Its also possible they are really old plugs.
