In true Honda style, the indicator was still working.

It's also running a bit rich, I've adjusted the pilot screws to 2 and 1/8 turn, but I'm still getting a bit of black smoke when I get on the throttle, any ideas?
Dirty or clogged air filter...main jet too large of has come loose...float level too high? Choke plungers stuck? I suppose too much carb cleaner in the tank could cause a higher exhaust temp and smoke. Maybe time for mini indicators.
