Get the carbs balanced first then fit new plugs if you can and check again especially for air leaks around carb rubbers.

A solution of water and soap is good for this or spit if you are lazy like most of us.

Remove spark plugs and check electrode colour. You are looking for a coffee coloured tip to see if mixture to that cylinder is correct. Black means burning oil or  not enough air, light grey to white means rich mixture so burns hotter
