You say running rich but is this at idle speed or normal riding speed? If at idle you need to adjust the mixture screw out a bit, standard setting is 1 5/8 turns out, so looks as though at 1 turn yours is too rich. Adjust it until you get a nice even tick over, you may have to adjust the throttle stop screw a bit either way to get speed right. I would recommend you buy a Haynes Manual as it covers this explicitly.
