black plug means its running too rich - is the choke stuck on?

would tight valves cause a lean or rich conditiion? And are they too tight? I can fit a .102mm gauge no problemo bur not the .127mm
Im guessing the valves are not my problem , should I shim them to get closer to the middle of the spec?
thanks for the responcee

if they are in spec, leave them alone
tight valves don't make it run rich.
when the valve clearance becomes zero they become difficult to start when cold.
Bent choke puller not allowing the plunger to seat fully when pushed in causing rich condition is my guess

Appently it was killing the engine so often that it gave me bad carb like symtoms, I pulled the guts out of tbe switch and all is good, runs like she used to and I cant wait to hit the trail tomorrow!
I am the happy camper,.........
