    can I tell if my engine is getting too much or not enough fuel by just looking
    at the exhaust pipes and or looking at the spark plugs ..

    No better than the stock Harley plugs IMO.

    Checking the plugs is great as many has told ya. I've done the check and they appear to be just as they should. Also, the exhaust pipe exhaust show a light brown color, almost copper looking. So maybe it's a clue as to what the plugs look like. I wouldn't put monies on it, but just my observance. Now if you do a lot of town driving, might be different.
