vettester,
Sounds VERY rich! Is the choke on? I'd recommend pulling the carb off and checking to see if the choke(enrichment circuit) is functioning properly. The enrichment valve on the end of the choke cable can be adjusted. You'll want to check to see if the main jet has been changed. But first, I have to recommend your obtaining a shop manual for the bike, you're gonna need the information available in the manual to sort through this. I'd also be looking at the float level and float needle and seat - something caused your oil to be contaminated with fuel! I wonder if someone replaced the pilot jet with a main jet?
