fuel/carby problem

Post by shane » Thu Jan 25, 2007 4:43 pm

my cb450 seems to have a fuel ploblem with the right hand carby. bike will start and idle, but right side very rough. have removed spark plug and tested compression, thats fine, but plug very black and strong fuel smell to it. have tried to set air/fuel mixture on carby, plus reset float level, but no change. can i purchase a carby kit to rebuild/overhaul carby?
or does any one have suggestions.
