Random Carb question...from someone new to the Carb world.

1995 VT1100 C2

How often or should you ever have to...resecronize or adjust in anyway the carbs.......within the last 10,000 miles my bike seems to be running a lil rich.....when its ideling ever so often I hear it miss......but then again I am not 100% sure it hasnt always done that. Also I notice I seem to smell more of a raw gas smell in my garage after I parked it in there directly after a ride than I did in the past....I dont know if I am just imagineing things or being to critical.....or if I should be gearing up for some carb work when it gets worse......right now I still have all the performance I want and my gasoline cosomption is still pretty much the same....I am not to worried...just wonderin if the re-adjusting carbs is a type of maintance thing.

Are you following the recommended maintenance schedule for plugs, carb sync, air filter changes, cable lubrication, etc.?
