2001 Banshee guestion

I just purchased a 2001 Banshee from my friend. I noticed after I let it warm up, the right exhaust spits out more smoke than the left. Is there an adjustment that I can do to the left carb to richen the mixture? It has been sitting since last October so this is the first time it has been run. It has the same gas mixture in it but I am mixing some fresh 93 octane with some MC1 oil to fill the tank back up. The mods are:

Toomey racing pipes
Boyeesen reeds
K&N filters

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Re: 2001 Banshee guestion

I figured as much on the carbs, It would be a good idea for me to pull the carbs off and apart for cleaning and a rebuild. Thanks for the tip! One thing that I noticed is that the left cylinder will drop in and out but when I pulled a little choke on the carbs, it seemed to run better and stay lit up. Any thoughts on that? I am assuming that there may be some gunk in the fuel bowl that may be causing the left carb to "choke" so to speak and causing it not fire correctly.
