426 running rich?

My bike fouled a new spark plug in about 3 months and sometimes it is hard to start sometimes without the hot start on even though it had just been idling for about a minute. Pilot jet??

My 2002 426 was running perfect last week after 1k in the shop about 5 months ago, and then it started acting like it was running rich so I cleaned out the carb and checked that the pilot jet was the right size. (It is) and after putting it back together it will turn over after many kicks but not start. Any thing else I need to check? What is up with this bike??!

Number 1 on the list, put a new plug in.

How old is the fuel have you checked the valves spark plug air filter

Turns out the plug was bad. I thought it was more than that. Thanks guys
