Tweeking 300 fourtrax carb.

I have read the sticky but it doesn't tell me what I want to know.

Be a simple answer for you gurus really.. Which way riches or weakens the mixture?

I've fitted a new plug and been out for a ride, checked the plug and it's a white/very light great colour.

Clockwise leans the mixture. Sounds like you need to come counterclockwise a bit.

the easy way to think of it, when you turn right to tighten, you are closing the hole up restricting more fuel. As you turn left to loosen, you are increasing the gap allowing more fuel in. Get it started and warm it up for about ten minuets before you start to adjust anything.

Ok thanks.

If I'd have tinkered with it for a while I'd have got it in the end, what I didn't want to do was make a long job out of it by starting from scratch when I only had a rough idea.

I've backed it off 1/8th of a turn, I'll go try that shortly and see how it goes.
