When I removed the carb I also took out the reed block-its a boyesen block and the previous owner tried to modify another brand reed valves in there with some modification on the holding plate- the reed tips was also open- will replace them. What is the correct fuel? Should I rather use 93 unleaded?

No, stay with 95 unleaded and 50:1 but get a correct spark plug.

Default Spark Plug Issue

Well, I replaced the reed valves with that of a Banshee ( Carbon Fibre) and now my bike runs like a beast. Will check the plug cap if it fouls again and also be a bit leaner on the hand when applying air filter oil. Thanks for the replies and advice.

Sorry, but fighting plug fouling with a hotter spark is not the right way. If you have toothache you can take a painkiller, it may help. But it is not the final solution.
