Default Running problems

Can anyone help I'm starting to get really angry with my 1997 Kawasaki kx100. Iv changed the coil, stator, air filter, clutch. But now its blowing plugs. The plug is clean when I take it out. Dose anyone have any ideas as to why and how I can fix this.

Do you mean it is fouling the spark plug?
If so, then I would suggest that the bottom end is loaded up with excess fuel mix and is causing the plug to foul. You must remove the excess fuel mix. Turn off the gas, drain the carb of fuel, remove the spark plug, open the throttle wide open and then kick the engine over until no more fuel mix comes from the spark plug hole. Then put a new plug in, open the fuel flow, hold the throttle wide open and kick start it. It should run ( but keep it at high rpms) , but very rough until all the excess fuel is blown out.

Make sure when you park the bike, even if it's for a few minutes, that you turn the fuel tap off as well.
