What spark plugs are you using?
Maybe try something different ?
Hotter, cooler non resister?
Different brand?
I run champion J 19LM in mine.

J 19LM in mine too. I also do this a couple times a season to clear the dust from the cooling fins.

I use a leaf blower, do it while the engine is running full speed.
Try to direct the blower all directions at the engine.
I find doing this is fast, easy and it works.

I have a mid 80's twin. I know this may sound simple, but mice like the gap between the cylinders and the shroud. Try taking them off and blowing all the crud out of the fins. I have to do mine at least once a year. Had the same issue. Good luck.
